This is almost surely an issue of the library build settings out of sync
with the program build settings. The included VC7 IDE projects might be out
of sync with the bjam builds. here are some other things to try

a) from with in the serialization/test directory, invoke the batch file with
the argument vc-7_1 . This should build all the libraries, demos and tests
for the serialization libary with a consistent set of settings.
b) If the above works, move the libraries from where they are build
boostdir/bin/... etc to you favorite local spot and alter thid IDE projects
to point to them.
c) Note that I have found that the IDE projects with the VC 7.1 IDE often
report a non-sensical error when I try to bring them up. This can be fixed
by going to the build menu item and selecting configuration setup and
explictly selectinga configureuation. The problem then goes away for a
while. Its an VC IDE thing.
