I've tried to carry out these instructions but changing the names and files a tiny bit
(Windows 7)

 but I've stumbled at the test run stage with

thrice_test.cpp(1) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'boost/trivial/twice.hpp': No such
 file or directory

but it is here


I *think* I've got the directory structure right, and I created a symbolic link that looks

I:\boost-trunk\boost>mklink /d trivial ..\libs\trivial\include\boost\trivial
symbolic link created for trivial <<===>> ..\libs\trivial\include\boost\trivial

  dir \trivial

doesn't find anything.

While I do some homework on symbolic links, any suggestions on where I have blundered?
