Trying to download for instance https://www.dropbox.com/s/b26bwzj8vc3f28s/llvm_windows_x86.7z?dl=0 will not work.

Doing the same using wget works fine. I think AppVeyor is failing to process some redirects or something.

    Can you drop a link to a build log please?

    OK, that URL basically returns HTML page (I guess with client-side JS redirect), it's not like 301 redirect: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/FeodorFitsner/simple-console/build/...

    Maybe wget is cool enough to execute the script and follow download URL.
