Hi, I am trying to run an application which can be compiled using visual studio 2017. I will need to use the updated the Visual studio 2019 appveyor image. Is it possible to have visual studio 2017 in Visual studio 2019 image?

    Hi Sujata,

    Could you please clarify why would you need VS 2017 on VS 2019 image? Why not just use Visual Studio 2017 image instead?

    I will need to use linux container which I believe is available in Visual Studio 2019.

    At the moment we are not planning to install VS 2017 to Visual Studio 2019 image. Maybe you can build the app in a separate job running on VS 2017, push it to some container registry (if it's not public) and then test it in a separate job running on Ubuntu or VS 2019?
