I have a solution which was created in VS 2015 and then migrated to VS 2017 by Visual Studio itself.
I want this solution to use MSBuild 15 to be able to compile C# 7.0 successfully .
Setting the install: value in .yml results in parsing error.
What is the correct way of doing this?

    Correct way is adding this to your appveyor.yml:

    feel free to send us your appveyor.yml if you are still having issues with it.
