Since last month all of our AppVeyor builds have started to fail with this exact error message:

A suitable version of 7zip was not found (required v23.1.0) Downloading portable 7zip 23.1.0...
Downloading 7zip...>C:\Tools\vcpkg\downloads\7z2301-extra.7z
Extracting 7zip...
'CMake' failed while extracting C:\Tools\vcpkg\downloads\7z2301-extra.7z.
Command exited with code 1

Here is one of the builds:
And here is the appveyor.yml:

    Looks like an issue with latest vcpkg.
    Suggested fix is adding this line after the ./bootstrap-vcpkg.bat...
    - ps: Start-FileDownload '' -FileName 'C:\Tools\vcpkg\vcpkg.exe'
