Well, it doesn't look like you're inclined to give up so I guess we can't

Do I take this to mean that almost all the tests (200+) compiled, linked,
and executed with no error?

OK the way I do it in the IDE is the following: Bring up the project
properties page for your project. check the following settings:

    1) Configuration Type: Application(.exe)
    2) Use of MFC: Use Standard Windows Libraries
    3) Use of ATL: Not using ATL

    1) General
        Additional Include Directories - the directory that contains boost
    3) Preprocessor:
        Preprocessor definitions - WIN32;_DEBUG;_CONSOLE
    4) Code Generation
        Enable C++ Exceptions - Yes(/EHsc)
        Runtime Library - Multi-threaded Debug DLL - note the DLL ! ( I
suspect this is the problem)
        Enable Function-level Linking - Yes(/Gy) I prefer this myself but
not strictly necessary
    5) Language
        Enable Run-Time type info - Yes (/GR)
    1) General
        Additional Library Directories - <directory that contains the
serialization library here>
    2) Input
        Additional Dependencies - libboost_serialization.lib

I would hope that those settings should do it. To make sure its finding the
correct libboost_serialization.lib - change the name of this file. It
should come up with an error at link time - can't find file
libbost_serialization.lib. Changing this name back should make this error go

The program should now compile !?

Good Luck.

Robert Ramey

P.S. The next version of the serialization library implements auto-link
functionality which may aleviate this sort of difficulty in the future.
