I'd like to help you but I need to ask some questions first for

- By "dir \trivial doesn't find anything", do you mean that Windows
throws an error at you and/or you don't get to see any directory
contents? If yes, does it help to leave out the backward slash
(assuming you run the command while in I:\boost-trunk\boost)?

- I think the symbolic link looks promising too, and I can't help but
wonder whether the thrice_test.cpp error is actually still occurring
since you made the link. I realise that you probably tried, just
asking for maximum clarity. :-)

- Are you experiencing these problems with existing Boost libraries as
well? For example, Boost.Array?
