I'm trying to set up testing on Windows using AppVeyor which involves installation of software and lots of experimentation. Currently, I'm pushing each test to GitHub, and I have to wait each time until the test starts and the software is installed in the new virtual machine. This requires about 5 to 10 minutes for each test, and I'd like to reduce this turnaround time.
I could purchase a paid plan (can I cancel it immediately? do you allow testing the paid plans free of charge?) in the hope that the time required until the build starts is reduced. Ideally, I'd like to cut also the time to install the software. I have thought about the following options:
- Access the virtual appliance you use for testing, either locally or within Azure
- Install TeamViewer or something similar in the test and access the worker for a limited time
- "Rip" the virtual appliance by performing a full backup (I'm sure this somehow violates your terms, though ;-) )
Any suggestions? Thanks!
