I am deploying a console-application (and later on a service) to a windows 2012 server using AppVeyor Agent. So far so good.

But I am going to deploy the same application to several environments and would like to change som parameters in an App.Config file. Is that possible?

    You can have deploy.ps1 updating app.config for specific environment:

    Input parameters could be passed in environment variables.

    Is it possible when installing service as well? I tried and it looked like it replaced the variables after it tried to install and start the service.

    Yeah, this could be an issue with Windows service. Looks like it should call deploy.ps1 before the service started. Will publish updated Deployment Agent today.

    Hi Thomas,

    We've deployed an update to Deployment Agent:

    deploy.ps1 is now being run before service is started, so you have an ability to update its app.config.
