Hello, I am using the AppVeyor to publish to Nuget. It always worked until now. I am doing some housekeeping and moved few properties to build.props. I have <GeneratePackageOnBuild>true</GeneratePackageOnBuild> set on my main project in its csproj. Yet I see AppVeyor passing /p:GeneratePackageOnBuild=false, and finally NuGet publish is failing since there is no nuget package generated. Please help.

    Remove publish_nuget: true from your appveyor.yml (or disable corresponding option on "Build" tab of project settings if you don't use YAML).

    Thank you Feodor, I tried updating yml. Now I can see its generating the package, but the final deployment part still failed. I had to manually add an artifact to pick up *.nupkg. This was not needed few days ago when my project had both .NET Framework as well as netstandard projects. Once its made as multi platform project this issue started. Did I miss anything?
