AppVeyor - Missing path to boost test adapter

Hi guys I'm running boost test for a VS2019 c++ solution and I can't get my unit tests to show up in the test tab.. I'm using boost consumed through vcpkg and I can run the `tests.exe` manually through `cmd` but it won show the results.

I also navigated the little documentation and posts available and managed to find an apparent solution which is to run it through vstest.console.exe but it requires `/TestAdapter` parameter which should point to the boost test parameter. Where is the Visual Studio 2019 image storing it? I can't find anything about it in the docs.. [see the bottom of the logs for more information]

I've also read this - - but I can't seem to relate my issue to it.
