Boost :

Hello, I know that I've asked this before but I have received no
response. So, I hope it is permissible to ask again. I really need
help with understanding what is happening as I really need boost to work
for me.

I'm a newbie to boost & am trying to use the "filesystem" library with
.Net 2005. I've gotten boost to compile & produce the following
libraries for windows vc-8_0 tool set: (@ bottom of email)

The problem I'm having is 2 fold:

1. which ones do I use ( I think I know, but...)
2. I am using
3. I've got the dll in the directory my executable runs from
4. I'm including the library w/in my project

But, every time I run my application, it bombs on the following code:

std::cerr << "file selection has changed: Fname/Folder:" << std::endl;
Glib::ustring gus_fname =
std::cerr << "file name:=" << gus_fname << std::endl << std::endl;

Glib::ustring gus_fname_foler =
std::cerr << "folder:=" << gus_fname_foler << std::endl << std::endl;

m_gusFobComponentsFileFullPath = gus_fname;

std::cerr << "using paths..." << std::endl;
boost::filesystem::path p(m_gusFobComponentsFileFullPath,
boost::filesystem::native); (**** BOMB ****)

The variable, m_gusFobComponentsFileFullPath, has the value:

For the life of me, I can not figure out why boost is crashing. An
older version of boost works just fine w/ this code and I am wondering
if I'm using the correct libraries or perhaps what was compiled is not
The error give is not a simple one to debug. The application simply
crashes @ the point noted when run. Under the debugger, it simply
crashes in a "locked" file and since I'm not using the debug version of
the libs, I can't walk into the code.

Would someone please help me? Thank you so much ahead of time. I
appreciate your advice and comments.
