You might want to post some code that shows what's wrong. Have you
tried informing the archives of the existence of derived 'b' via
BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT(b)? And does your 'b' correctly serialize it's
base class 'a' via base_object<> ?

Doesn't matter what order they're registered in. Just that they're
