Software request: NSIS
Many open source devs use NSIS to package their software; having it pre-installed on the worker would be nice.

WiX has been always installed on build workers (3.9 is the currently installed one).
NSIS could be easily installed with Chocolatey:
It's getting installed into
C:\Program Files (x86)\NSISdirectory: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/FeodorFitsner/simple-console/build/...

I use to include the NSIS required files in my project so that the project can be independent of the NSIS version installed on the machine. This way I resolved a lot of issues with NSIS for ppl trying to package the app.

Like the OP, I'd love to see NSIS provided "out of the box".
