According to the installed software table , Visual Studio 2019 image should have only pscore 6.2 installed.

but in my appveyor yaml:

image: Visual Studio 2019
configuration: Release
  - ps: $PSVersionTable

prints :

Name                           Value
PSVersion 5.1.17763.771
PSEdition Desktop
PSCompatibleVersions {1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0...}
BuildVersion 10.0.17763.771
CLRVersion 4.0.30319.42000
WSManStackVersion 3.0
PSRemotingProtocolVersion 2.3

This causes some of my scripts to fail because they rely on pscore functionality.
