Travis allows encrypting files, not just values: http://docs.travis-ci.com/user/encrypting-files/
This is super useful for adding additional SSH keys etc. I had been trying to take the file content sof a key and encrypt them as an environment variable, and write it to file, but the line endings were mangled. Allowing file encryption would be ideal. I realize tehre's not a command line tool, but just being able to upload the file, and putting it in an "encrypted files" section in the yml would suffice.

Yeah, great suggestion. There is already an item for that: https://github.com/appveyor/ci/issues/261

It's here! I've just published this: http://www.appveyor.com/docs/how-to/secure-files

I've followed this guideline http://www.appveyor.com/docs/how-to/secure-files to store sensitive information and retrieve it during the build.
I've encrypted the file on my dev machine, tested that I can decrypt and retrieve the original file locally.
However, after setting up Appveyor and running my build, I get an "Error decrypting file. Command exited with code 3".To investigate, I've connected to the build machine and it seems that the environment variable I created for my secret is not present, although I have defined it in the Environment variables section of the project configuration.
Note also that if I execute the command on the build machine specifying the secret (without trying to get it from the environment variable) it works fine.
Therefore I am wondering if the install step maybe occurs before the environment variable was created?
I've attached the appveyor,yml file used for this project.

Everything looks configured correctly. Environment variables are present at install stage, but they are session specific, which is why when you login and create a new session those environment variables do not show up.
Do you belong to more than one AppVeyor account? I'm asking in case you are encrypting the secure variable under a different login than the project that you are building.

I do have access to AppVeyor with 2 accounts (the account owner from which I created this project and another one associated with my personal email address).
I have tried to encrypt the secret with these 2 different logins and I get the same encrypted secret.
I have stored this encrypted secret in the Environment tab of the project settings.

There is no way encrypted secret can be the same when created from different account. Are you sure you switched between accounts?

Sorry I was confused by the terminology here (I thought your were talking about users). I am actually using the same account when encrypting the secret and when storing it in the project.
