Hello, I'm using MSMQ service to do integration testing for my project. To use it, I've included it in my appveyor.yml:

enable service required for tests

- mssql2008r2sp2 - msmq

Everything was awesome until yesterday I tried to run a build, and in the beginning it logged the following message:

9 Start-Service : Cannot find any service with service name 'msmq'. 10 At line:1 char:1
11 + Start-Service 'msmq'
12 + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
13 + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (msmq:String) [Start-Service], ServiceCommandException
14 + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NoServiceFoundForGivenName,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.StartServiceCommand

    MSMQ service has been deployed to the latest image. Sorry for that, it's a new Windows Server 2012 R2 build worker image has been introduced as a default choice recently.
