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.

    P.S. the markdown is not working.

    I am in the same bucket. Did you find a solution to this? :)

    Not the one that would like.
    At the moment I'm running the test executable expecting it to zero as exit code, but none of the tests whether succeeding or not, show up in the tab.
    Still better than no tests at all
