i´m realy interestet to get Boost Serialization working for my programs load/save routines so i downloaded boost_1_43_0 from the boost homepage...

i followed the instructions and installed everything by:


as written in "Getting started.."

now I added the include path tho my project and intellisense works so i guess the libs are "out there" :)

when i tried compiling i got

1>LINK : fatal error LNK1104: Datei "boost_serialization-vc100-mt-gd-1_43.lib" kann nicht geöffnet werden.
// in in english: cannot open file ...

when I searched for the file in the include dir i only found the file without "-gd-" in it's filename... the getting started guide says somthing about the "-d-" in the filename but "-gd-" is not mentioned... and even if it would be - i cant get a clue out of it....

thanks for your help

bjam debug release toolset=msvc-10.0 address-model=32 threading=single,multi link=static runtime-link=static,shared

This is kind of my catchall command. It will produce pretty much all of the libraries for any compile you have. It will take over 2 gigs when all is said and done.

If you need 64-bit libraries too, you'll need to move all of the files to a seperate directory and change address-model=32 to address-model=64. You need to move them, because the file names don't make any distinction between the 32 and 64 bit versions.
