If I don't specify an "image" key in my appveyor.yml file, then my Python 3.8 is "3.8.0", which has some bugs I want to avoid.

If I specify "image: Visual Studio 2019", then I get 3.8.6, which is great, but it looks like my 2.7 and 3.5 jobs can't find the compiler to use:

What should I do to get 2.7, 3.5, and 3.8 all working correctly?

    Hi Ned,

    What compilers would you need?

    This is the script we currently use to install VS 2019: That's the full list of VS components:

    Also, you may try running 2.7 and 3.5 builds on different images (Visual Studio 2015 or Visual Studio 2017) to see if that works.
