I'm building my project with all versions of build tools v140,v141 and now I want to add v142.
For that I have to switch to Visual Studio 2019 image, but it appears the image does not contain v141 tools. Though it looks like v140 tools are there.

Also, that newer image does not contain Windows SDK 8.1 which is also needed to support Windows 7.

Could you add those to the image?

Here is the failed build:

    We are going to install missing SDKs in the next update. Please watch this issue: https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/3071

    Will also look into installing v142 and SDK 8.1 as well:
