No, note that the test_simple_class includes serialization of a wstring
object and that it seems to work with all archive types

Are you including:

include <boost/serialization/string.hpp>

in your code?

Note that there are TWO serialization libraries. libboost_serialization
includes all basic code for serialization as well as precompiled class for
character mode i/o. libboost_wserialization includes precompiled classes
for wide character i/o. This was done this way in order to
a) simplify thngs for platforms which don't implement wide character i/o
b) speed up things for those who don't use wide character i/o

So in addition to linking with libboost_serialization.lib, link with
libboost_wserialization.lib as well
