When linking statically against Boost.Filesystem the (msvc) link step fails if
<boost/filesystem.hpp> was included by one of the source files.
Everything's works if
- compiling with GCC, or
- none of the source files includes boost/filesystem.hpp.
The link settings are
<threading>multi <link>static <runtime-link>static
Here are the symptoms:
is built, but linking fails because
... cannot open file 'libboost_filesystem-vc80-mt-sgd-1_34.lib'
to the link settings changes error message to
... cannot open file 'libboost_filesystem-vc80-mt-s-1_34.lib'
I'm using Boost.Build V2. There is an example project that shows the problem
attached to this post (note the path to Boost in 'project-root.jam' needs manual
I hope the report was of any help.
