No, the Boost.Thread dll and your code must share the same runtime - by that
I mean both that they link to the same *type* of runtime (lets say
multithreaded-dll-debug), and they must actually share the same heap at
runtime (this is why you can't use a static runtime - because your
application and the dll would have different heaps, leading to memory
corruption when resources - such as thrown exceptions - are passed across
the dll boundary).

That's why there are only two versions of the thread lib:


That's it, nothing else is possible as it stands.
