      Description

      "Replicating AppVeyor Builds" needs the following changes: https://arrow.apache.org/docs/developers/cpp/windows.html#replicating-appveyor-builds

      • The recommended VM does not include the C++ compiler - we should link to the build tools and describe which of them needs installation
      • Boost: the b2 script now requires --with not -with flags
      • The batch script were renamed (appveyor-cpp-build/appveyor-cpp-setup)
      • Prefer JOB=Build_Debug as otherwise it forces clcache
      • BOOST_INCLUDEDIR must be set to C:\Boost\include\boost_VERSION
      • Use conda manually to install gtest gflags ninja rapidjson grpc-cpp protobuf

      Even with this:

      • The developer prompt can't find cl.exe (the compiler). (You must restart the VM!)
      • The PowerShell prompt can't use conda (it complains a config file isn't signed)
        Solution: run a PowerShell instance as administrator and run "Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted"
