Hi, I'm struggling to execute the testsuite for a vim plugin that fail to write directories and files.
The plugin is here

This is the interesting failing build copied in the attached file: (last version of vim errors are silenced)

I've added this line in appveyor.yml to set rights:
    ICACLS "C:\projects\diantre\autoload" /grant:r "appveyor:(F)" /C

Also I've tried with basckslash directory separator and got the exact same error.
I dig and read other cases with similar errors but couldn't find a solution.
Would you please help me.

    What directory does it (process?) fail to write into?

    It fails to create directories inside the plugin at C:\projects\diantre\autoload

    I've found the reason:
    mkdir -p has a different behaviour on windows, if the directory exists it throws an error ^^'
