Hi,
I'm struggling to make a simple PS script to install some package under some conditions but i'm not able to get the syntax right for a multi-line execution. The only documentation found is here http://www.appveyor.com/docs/build-configuration, and it's of not much use :%
I've tried several things and nothing works, I always end up with a message like this one:
'XXX' is not recognized as an internal or external command.

Thanks,

    I'd like to install maven and cache the installation. To do that, I'd like to check if the installation folder already exiats during installation, but I cannot get the syntax right.
    Here is what i'm trying to do:

    install:
      - ps:
      - $MVNDIR = 'C:\bin\apache-maven-3.2.3\'
      - if(!(Test-Path -Path $MVNDIR )){
      - cinst maven
      -}
      - cmd: SET PATH=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%PATH:C:\Ruby193\bin;=%
      - cmd: java -version
    # Note: env variables are not correctly updated by choco (setting it manually)
      - cmd: SET PATH=C:\bin\apache-maven-3.2.3\bin;%PATH%
      - cmd: mvn --version
    build_script:
      - mvn package
    test_script:
      - mvn test
    cache:
      - C:\bin\apache-maven-3.2.3\

    I see. Try this:

    install:
    - ps: >-
        $MVNDIR = 'C:\bin\apache-maven-3.2.3\'
        if(!(Test-Path -Path $MVNDIR )){
          cinst maven
        }
    - cmd: SET PATH=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%PATH:C:\Ruby193\bin;=% 
    ...

    It works now, thanks :)
    Dunno why I had to add a line brake after the $MVNDIR line, but it's working nicely now.
    Here is the file in case some else needs it
