My build fails with:

MSBUILD : error MSB1011: Specify which project or solution file to use because this folder contains more than one project or solution file.

My project has multiple .sln files, but there's a build section in the appveyor.yaml:

build:
    project: PandocFilters.sln

However, AppVeyor doesn't seem to recognize it.

    Hi Zev,

    It looks like appveyor.yml is not being read/used. This could be a cause for your other issue.

    Make sure you can see a list of repositories on "New project" page and re-authorize AppVeyor to access your GitHub account if necessary.

    The "New Project" page shows me a list of repos; I'd recently revoked and reauthorized AppVeyor on GitHub.

    Oh, I see it fails on dotnet restore. Change it here to dotnet restore PandocFilters.sln to make it work.

    Thank you! That fixes it.
    (I feel rather silly now; it seems so obvious in hindsight.)

    But it seems unrelated to the other issue.
