I thought we'd special cased the v14 toolset already.

This should be an update to the Python code in distutils that selects the filename based on compiler version.

Extract of pythoninfo of the failed build:

os.environ[VS110COMNTOOLS]: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\Tools\
os.environ[VS120COMNTOOLS]: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\Tools\
os.environ[VS140COMNTOOLS]: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\Tools\

The build starts with:

Using "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\MSBuild\15.0\Bin\MSBuild.exe"  (found in the PATH)

This is the bit that needs fixing

                bv = '.'.join(CRT_ASSEMBLY_VERSION.split('.', 2)[:2])
                if bv == '14.11':
                    # v141 and v140 are binary compatible,
                    # so keep using the 14.0 stub.
                    bv = '14.0'

AppVeyor has clearly gotten hold of 14.12, which should also be binary compatible (version numbers here are not strictly SemVer, but the 14 indicates binary compatibility).

@Steve: do you want to work on a fix?
msg308233 - (view) Author: Steve Dower (steve.dower) * (Python committer) Date: 2017-12-13 19:16
Happy for someone else to do it. I won't have time this week - too much going on at work.

Sure. I wrote a PR to fix the exact bug.

It seems like AppVeyor is fixed, thanks Steve for the help!

Later, it would be nice to write a more generic fix than hardcoding two minor versions.
