Attempting to use the AppVeyor MSBuild logger with dotnet msbuild fails with following message on a VS2017 image:

MSBUILD : error MSB1021: Cannot create an instance of the logger.
Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Build.Utilities.v3.5, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.
The system cannot find the file specified.
Switch: C:\Program Files\AppVeyor\BuildAgent\Appveyor.MSBuildLogger.dll

Not using causes errors to not be reported. Is there a compatible logger available for dotnet msbuild command?
(And maybe the build documentation page should be updated about this case.)

    Please watch this GitHub issue:, it should start working as long is this is done.
