I am trying to run devenv and build is hanging due to an error dialog displaying "Invalid license data. Reinstall is required."

    I've just tested devenv.exe on Visual Studio 2015 image and it worked:

    Can you drop your appveyor.yml please?

    Thanks, I was able to get it working using your example as a guide.

    If you still want it, here is the version that was giving me the error.
