I tried start this both via the services entry as well as via powershelgl like the other instances I test on. Nothing works. Here is the output from using services entry in the appveyor.yml:

Starting SQL Server 2016 Developer
Start-Service : Cannot find any service with service name 'MSSQL$SQL2016'.
At line:1 char:1
+ Start-Service 'MSSQL$SQL2016'
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (MSSQL$SQL2016:String) [Start-Service], ServiceCommandException
    + Ful

    Hi Ken,

    Sorry for the trouble. We realized that for some historical reason your account is internally bound to Visual Studio 2013 image. We change it to default Visual Studio 2015. If you still need Visual Studio 2013 image, please set image: Visual Studio 2013 in your appveyor.yml. But SQL Server 2016 is not going to be installed on this Visual Studio 2013 image.
