This seems most convenient, for example requiring just:

#pragma comment( lib, "unit_test_library.lib" )


#include <boost/test/unit_test.hpp> // for unit_test framework

in the test file,

and setting the 'global' library directory using

Tools, Options, Projects, VC++ Directories, drop-down selecting library instead
of executables, and adding a new item




However perhaps you can advise how to make this work to select the right library
for release and debug modes.

J:\Cpp\Unit_test_library\$(ConfigurationName) doesn't appear to work in this
context in release mode. (Lots of duplicate libc. ... at link stage).
