Problem with Boost Libraries RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an existing application that requires boost libraries. So I downloaded boost library "boost_1_35_0" from this website

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/boos.../boost/1.35.0/

    and extracted it in program folder

    C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_35_0

    Now the compiler is unable to find this library

    libboost_regex-vc80-mt-1_35.lib

    I searched for this library everywhere including the boost folder where I extracted it, and it wase'nt present. So is there any batch file in command prompt do I have to run in order to create this library file?

    Thanks in Advance

  • Did you build boost? If not, does this help?

  • OK thanks I tried steps mentioned here

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/tips/Building_boost_libraries.aspx

    but instead of "libboost_regex-vc80-mt-1_35.lib" it only creates "boost_regex-vc80-mt-gd-1_35.lib" :(

  • you can also move add it to you known libraries. I forget the technical terms so heres the dumb man way of saying it: "I think its you linker settings for the compiler, make sure it has those files as a directory".
