Hi there,
This is a weird one and I am not sure what is happening. Some of our build scripts started to fail a few days ago

We realized that the root cause seems to be that the env variable APPVEYOR_BUILD_FOLDER returns a path without "/"

Please see here

In this line, we are printing to the console the variable mentioned above
it returns

Instead of

Any idea what is going on? Is there a way to retrieve the build_folder in any other way? For now we have hard coded the build folder to make the build pass but this is not too clean

    That part of build agent has never been changed. How do you access/print that env variable? Can you do a simple repro in a separate repository?
