Our unit tests ( started failing on the build machine and I can't reproduce locally. I see that a crash dump is produced: file:///C:/Users/appveyor/AppData/Local/CrashDumps/vstest.executionengine.exe.2696.dmp file in Visual Studio and choose "Debug in mixed mode".

How can I get access to it?

    Hi Markus,

    You can RDP to build worker as described here and download a crash dump. I think on_finish stage and blocking mode as described in the document is best for this situation.

    Thank you,

    Another way is to publish crash dump as an artifact according to, also at on_finish or on_failure stage.
