    +1 we depend on this for release native node binaries which currently cannot support Node 5 on Windows.

    But it's already available on all build workers. Use this cmdlet to switch:

    Install-Product node ''

    I don't believe this is applicable because we test under multiple versions of Node.
    We're using the documented method for doing so -

    However `nodejs_version: "5"` does not use Node 5.

    Interesting. How is that possible given that commit is the head of master and the appveyor config change happened days beforehand?

    I think he says the second part of the config doesn't contain Node 5 and
    that this part was used, not the "release" part above. The commit is not
    relevant to this remark.

    I see. I misread the PR and assumed we were using Node 5 for both. This should be patched on our end. I can confirm release does build Node 5. Thank you both
