ANSI supported in on premise?

Recently we started using Nuke.Build to handle build scripts with our on-prem server, but for some reasons all ANSI-codes seems to be escaped, not sure if it's due to some formatting error from Nuke.Build or something else.

Example output:

?[36;1mTarget                       Status      Duration?[0m
?[32;1mPreBuild                     Executed        0:01?[0m
?[32;1mStartYarnTasks               Executed      < 1sec?[0m
?[32;1mRestore                      Executed        2:12?[0m
?[32;1mReplaceBuildTimeConstants    Executed      < 1sec?[0m
?[32;1mCompileMsBuild               Executed        2:09?[0m
?[32;1mDotNetTests                  Executed        3:44?[0m
?[32;1mCompileCoreProjects          Executed        2:54?[0m
?[32;1mPushPhrase                   Executed        0:51?[0m
?[32;1mYarnTests                    Executed        0:27?[0m
?[32;1mCopyYarnOutput               Executed        0:01?[0m
?[32;1mPushToCDN                    Executed        0:10?[0m
?[32;1mPushCoreProjects             Executed        0:30?[0m
?[32;1mCopyWeirdMissingDlls         Executed      < 1sec?[0m
?[32;1mWebconfigTransforms          Executed        0:01?[0m
?[32;1mPushMsBuild                  Executed        2:26?[0m
?[32;1mTagAppveyorArtifacts         Executed        0:01?[0m
?[32;1mPublishDocker    ��           Executed        6:06?[0m

The ? in front of all ANSI-codes makes me think that it's some kind of encoding problem.

    I'm not sure why ESC symbol is not translated, but you can just disable PTY emulation in your builds by defining APPVEYOR_CONSOLE_DISABLE_PTY: true environment variable. Hope that helps.
