Build Matrix issues

In our project, we have non-default platforms ("Win32" instead of "x86") and configurations ("Release-SSE2"); it would be neat to have support for such cases in the configuration UI (I haven't tested yet whether it is supported via appveyor.yml).

In addition, not all combinations of platforms and configurations are maintained; in particular, "Release-SSE2|x64" is not supposed to be built (and in fact currently doesn't even exist in the project files);. It would be neat to have support for this case as well, at least via appveyor.yml if not via the configuration UI.

    The best way to configure that is using appveyor.yml:

    You can specify configurations allowing to fail. Alternatively, you can define all permutations as environment variables matrix.

    Using allow_failures as a workaround for my issue seems like a dirty hack to me, knowing the configuration in question will never ever succeed.

    As for your alternative suggestion, I have no idea how that would look like; can you provide sample appveyor.yml code for it?
    The configuration needs to build "Release|Win32", "Release|x64" and "Release-SSE2|Win32", but should ideally make no attempt to build "Release-SSE2|x64".

      - configuration: Release
        platform: Win32
      - configuration: Release
        platform: x64
      - configuration: Release-SSE2
        platform: Win32

    That does the job - thanks a lot!

    I think this deserves to be mentioned in the documentation section of the website.
