I've just tried building the Boost.Test library with the free VC 7.1 tools. I
get this error:

msvc.compile.c++ ..\..\..
..\..\..\libs\test\src\execution_monitor.cpp(52) : fatal error C1083: Cannot
open include file: 'wtypes.h': No such file or directory

    call "W:/Program Files/Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003\bin\vcvars32.bat"
> nul
cl /Zm800 -nologo -TP -DBOOST_TEST_NO_AUTO_LINK=1 /Z7 /Od /Ob0 /GX /GR /MDd
-I"..\..\.." -c -Fo"..\..\..
\bin\libs\test\build\msvc-7.1\debug\link-static\execution_monitor.obj" "..

All the other files compile fine, so I assume it's not misconfiguration, and
that Boost.Test uses some header which is not included in free tools. Is it
possible to fix that? I guess that I'm not the only one Linux user who would
like to test code with free vc 7.1 and if Boost.Test fails to build that's
not possible.
