Setting APPVEYOR_REPO_TAG_NAME manually when there is no tags on pr builds.

So basically I am deploying to a separate repository, that repository I want releases to be the name obtained from the version of the actual appveyor build set from the first line of my appveyor.yml file. But on a tag do not change it. However it seems to make releases named "$(APPVEYOR_REPO_TAG_NAME)" instead for some odd reason. I do not want to monkey patch it to match the tag name, I want to push a tag and then it pushes the tag with the same name as I pushed to this separate repository and then increment the first line of my appveyor.yml to{build} on the next commit after the release tag.

    It seems I needed to replace the $env:version when I am setting the tag name manually to $env:APPVEYOR_BUILD_VERSION.
