    Hi Allan,

    Add this to appveyor.yml to apply the fix during the build:

    - ps: (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/appveyor/ci/master/scripts/hot-fixes/vs2017-uwp-scale-100-fix/Microsoft.AppxPackage.Targets', "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v15.0\AppxPackage\Microsoft.AppxPackage.Targets")

    We added a new issue to track its resolution: https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/1489

    Can you do a simple repro solution in a public repository, so we have an integration test once the official fix available?

    Latest update should fix this. Please let me know when the images get updated.
