C / CXX compiler identification is unknown

We've migrated our project from Mercurial to Git.
The pipeline on the Mercurial project works well, but in the new git project's pipeline, CMake 3.6.3 can't find the C / CXX compilers of Visual Studio 2010.
Old project working fine : https://bitbucket.org/TYMPAN/code_tympan/src/default/appveyor.yml
New project with the trouble :https://bitbucket.org/jripolles/code_tympan_git/src/master/appveyor.yml

I can't figure out the reason why CMake can't find the C/ CXX compilers now.
I've tried configuring the image Visual Studio 2015 in the settings, then setting a variable image in appveyor.yml, but it always fail.

Could you give us the right configuration to have the pipeline works again ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Jean,

    Configure image: Visual Studio 2015 in appveyor.yml. If there is a YAML in the repo then UI settings are mostly ignored. Let me know if that worked.
