I've tried this:

%comspec% /k ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat"" amd64

But get this response: The specified configuration type is missing. The tools for the configuration might not be installed.

I need to build libwebp:

    x64 environment comes with Windows SDK 7.0.

    Use SetEnv.bat for setting up environment:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\SetEnv.cmd" /x64

    Is there a corresponding appveyor.yml file? Encoding quotes and spaces properly seems to be a minefield.

    Slash-encoding spaces fails:

    C:\Program\ Files\Microsoft\ SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\SetEnv.cmd /x64
    -> 'C:\Program\' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    AppVeyor crashes and gives a 404 for the build page if you forget to double-backslash slashes:
    "\"C:\Program Files\Microsoft\ SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\SetEnv.cmd\" /x64" -> AppVeyor 404.

    "\"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\SetEnv.cmd\" /x64" -> Works, but.. my eyes! Surely there's a cleaner way?

    In appveyor.yml:

      - '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\SetEnv.cmd" /x64'

    single quotes - it's a string without escapes.
