I have this in my appveyor.yml:

  - set PSDKDir=C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1
  - call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\SetEnv.Cmd" /win7 /x64 /Release
  - set WIXDIR="c:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Installer XML v3.5"
  # We're not doing any codesigning in the Appveyor build yet.
  - SET CODESIGN_PKT=0000000000000000
  - set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Python26;C:\Perl64\bin;C:\tools\cygwin\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\HTML Help Workshop
  - set PATH=%PATH%;C:/msys64/usr/bin
  - set PATH=%PATH%;C:\program files (x86)\windows installer xml v3.5\bin;C:\cygwin\bin
  - set dbg__type=Debug
  - title Heimdal Build %CPU% %dbg__type%
  - echo PATH=%PATH%
  - nmake /f NTMakefile APPVEYOR=1 MAKEINFO=makeinfo NO_INSTALLERS=1

following installation of msys2 dependencies. How would I change this?

    - ps: dir 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SDKs\Windows' -Recurse

    shows me the locations of the SDKs. I'll try 7.1 first.
