For msvc-14.0 only a trivial change is required:

In xml_oarchive.hpp:

void save_binary(const void *address, std::size_t count);

should be:

BOOST_ARCHIVE_DECL void save_binary(const void *address, std::size_t count);

There are still 2 failures after that - test_dll_exported_test fails I
*think* because you never set -DPOLYMORPHIC_BASE_EXPORT on the command
line, so nothing is actually exported, and test_iterators fails with an
assertion which I haven't looked into.

HTH, John.
