Sorry for being inprecise. I use vs2005/vc++8.0 (not 7.1) under WindowsXP. The error message reads 'Unable to start program xxx. This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Review the manifest file for possible errors. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. For more details please see the application event log.'

I just had a look at the manifest file:
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
      <assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT" version="8.0.50608.0" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"></assemblyIdentity>
      <assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT" version="8.0.50727.762" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"></assemblyIdentity>

And this is really weird since there are 2 dependencies of the same c-runtime but with different versions. When I compile it without any boost.serialization code, then there is only one dependency (the first one). So it seems that there is a dependency issue. Maybe the auto-link feature is not working correctly. Has somebody an idea how I could fix that?
Thanks in advance.
