Hello All,
 I have a integration with the openvswitch and appveyor with logs here:

"The build tools for WindowsKernelModeDriver8.1 (Platform Toolset = 'WindowsKernelModeDriver8.1') cannot be found"

This was not a problem before. The build tools was added a few months before as part of the following request:

Was this support removed recently?

    Hi Guru,

    Visual Studio 2013 Update 5 was deployed yesterday. Maybe WDK was affected by that... will take a look.

    Oh, looks like WDK was indeed wiped out during VS 2013 update. You never know!

    I'm going to fix that today and deploy updated image.
