Different versions of VSSDK

I'm having issues with the VSSDK support in AppVeyor. I'm contributing to a github project that builds a VSIX and therefore relies on the VSSDK. I forked the project and setup an AppVeyor build which appears to use the VSSDK/v12 and successfully builds. However, my pull requests against the original project fail and it appears that the AppVeyor build for that project are using VSSDK/v11.

Forked project (successful builds): https://ci.appveyor.com/project/cfbarbero/slow-cheetah/build/1.0.14...

1937 Target "ValidateVsixManifest" in file "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\ v12.0 \VSSDK\Microsoft.VsSDK.targets" from project "C:\projects\slow-cheetah\SlowCheetah\SlowCheetah.csproj" (target "DetokenizeVsixManifestFile" depends on it):

1938 Using "ValidateVsixManifest" task from assembly "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\ v12.0 \VSSDK\Microsoft.VsSDK.Build.Tasks.dll".

Original project (failing builds): https://ci.appveyor.com/project/sayedihashimi/slow-cheetah/build/1....

1906 Target "ValidateVsixManifest" in file "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\ v11.0 \VSSDK\Microsoft.VsSDK.targets" from project "C:\projects\slow-cheetah\SlowCheetah\SlowCheetah.csproj" (target "DetokenizeVsixManifestFile" depends on it):

    Is it still running with appveyor.yml?

    My guess would be environment variables. If there are environment variables defined for that project on UI they are merged with those ones defined in appveyor.yml.

    You were correct. There were some custom environment variables defined. Removing those fixed the issues.
