It seems that the "using namespace boost" statements in shared_ptr_132.hpp and shared_count_132.hpp trigger a problem in VC8 + SP1.
Try the following small program:
#include <boost/serialization/shared_ptr_132.hpp>
#include <boost/cstdint.hpp>
typedef unsigned short uint16_t;
int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
uint16_t u;
return 0;
Will result in this error:
error C2872: 'uint16_t' : ambiguous symbol
The workaround implemented for Borland works around the bug in VC8 too:
using namespace boost;
This problem was submitted to boost Trac (Ticket #1285). Unfortunately, the ticket was closed as "wontfix".
