Hey Feodor,

I successfully built my project, xaavan-batchprocessor-fork. It is a .NET application (exe).
However, there was no artifact generated. Attached is the log file.

I built another project, xaavan-web-fork, an ASP.NET web application. An artifact was generated.
Why does this have an artifact but the other dont?

Awaiting your reply =)

    Hi Ivan,

    Make sure "package web application projects" is enabled on project Build settings.

    Hey Feodor,

    It's a .NET Application (.exe).

    I have checked "package web application projects", as shown in the screenshot.

    OK, AppVeyor automatically packages only those kinds of projects (web apps,
    Azure CS, NuGet packages).
    You could setup packaging of your app on "Artifacts" tab of project

    Thanks Feodor. It works beautifully.

    It would be helpful if we could have shell access to the build VM though, for simple functions like "dir/ls"

    Yeah, we plan such a feature in the future, thanks!

    Fun fact: because the VM's have Git installed, they also have MSYS. So you can run "sh -c ls" or "sh --login" as part of your build_script and it'll work. Or you can do cmd functions like dir as lines in your build_script.
