    Unfortunately, "Microsoft (R) Build Engine version 12.0.31101.0" is still running instead the last version.
    I have tried "os: Visual Studio 2015" via config file and ui settings.
    Also the solution file begins with:

    Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 12.00
    # Visual Studio 14
    VisualStudioVersion = 14.0.23107.0
    MinimumVisualStudioVersion = 10.0.40219.1

    You need to add this as a pre-build step:
    SET PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin;%PATH%
    as described here: www.appveyor.com/updates.

    I was also confused by this. I thought that selecting an the "Visual Studio 2015" OS configuration would automatically have my builds run in Visual Studio 2015. But, not so. Take a look at my appveyor.yml at https://github.com/briansmith/ring to see how I got it working.

    Now it works as expected.

    Please, can you move me to the Free (2015) plan too?
    Also, what should I configure to build DNX projects properly (that was recently migrated from classic C# class library projects)? I think I didn't get the following:
    1) how the build number should be used with DNX projects? As soon as dnu packs the nuget packages instead of standard NuGet, I don't know how build number can be applied to this process.
    2) is it enough to set the PATH env. variable and use "Visual Studio 14" in solution file to invoke MSBuild 14.0?

    your account has been moved.

    1) where is version number stored: project.json? I think you should somehow inject version number into project.json (PowerShell with regex?).

    2) yes, that should be enough.

    Perfect, thanks!

    1) yes, the "version" attribute in project.json. Also, at this moment I have no clue about star notation in that attribute, and how it can be used in conjunction with build number (in aspnet wiki I've seen something like "version" : "0.1-alpha-*"). Anyway, I'll drop you a line if find an acceptable approach.
    2) good, I will try my builds again.

    Can you please move my account (codito) to Free (VS 2015)? Would love to try out the newer msbuild.
