Is there any way to currently build a project targeting TypeScript 1.5beta? It's been the only download available from the TypeScript site for a while now so seems to be the recommended version to use when developing.

    Do you need it to use from Visual Studio? If not, it can be installed with npm during the build.

    Currently we let the csproj file handle the TypeScript compilation so
    ideally I'd keep it that way.

    If we need to switch to npm and Grunt then I know that's possible; I just
    wanted to see if there was an easier way before I start introducing more
    dependencies into the project.

    OK, seems like "TS for VS" should be installed then. Do you use it with VS 2015?

    We're using it with 2013 at the moment but will but upgrading to 2015 in a
    few months.

    Is there a way we can install it as part of the build or is that something
    that'd need to be done on your end?

    Looks like it could be silently installed during the build with the following script:

    $exePath = "$($env:USERPROFILE)\TypeScript_15beta_Dev12.exe"
    (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/107f89a0-a542-4264-b0a9-eb91037cf7af/file/160654/1/TypeScript_15beta_Dev12.exe', $exePath)
    cmd /c start /wait $exePath /quiet

    Took only 1 minute of build time to install on Pro environment.

    Ah, awesome. I'd no idea that level of access was available to the build
    machine (very new to AppVeyor).

    I'll see if I can get the build working in the morning and let you know how
    it went. Thanks!
