Problem with std::thread

I'm trying to setup appveyor for a C++ project
My .appveyor.yml looks like that:
But appveyor is trying to build, it say the following error: 'thread' is not a member of 'std'

I don't think the error is from my code because it's working locally and also on Travis CI:

Does someone know how I could fix that ?

Thanks in advance,

    By locally you mean on windows or linux?

    By locally I mean Windows with MinGW 64 bit.

    Sorry for late response.
    I'm not sure where you are with this problem and i don't have a vast knowledge of MinGW, but if I understand this post correctly, the version of MingW you're using might not support threads?
    Do you use the same version locally?
