Hey there, in my test_script I use dotnet test X.csproj to test my assembly with appveyor. Sometimes it is working, sometimes it is not and appveyor stops immediately without any error message:

Starting test execution, please wait...
[ 00:00:00.6405421] Discovering: Prism.Tests
[ 00:00:00.9129221] Discovered: Prism.Tests
[ 00:00:00.9865457] Starting: Prism.Tests

I know that this is also related to dotnet-cli and xunit but maybe there are also some error on the appveyor side? It is stopping without any error message...

    And my current dotnet-cli tools are: .NET Command Line Tools (1.0.0)
    How do I get to 1.0.1 with Visual Studio 2017 environment?

    Hi Victor,

    If you use UI, please set build worker image to Visual Studio 2017 in Settings > Environment, or if you use YAML, add image: Visual Studio 2017 to it.

    Let us know if this helps.

    Hi Viktor,

    Sorry I should have look at your appveyor.yml first, my bad. What you observe is another manifestation of this GH issue. We are working on it right now.
