Not sure about your specific situation, but I use Visual Studio 2015
Update 2 and I have no trouble at all debugging executables built with
Boost.Build. Just choose File->Open->Project/Solution and then select
the .exe file from the bin/ directory or wherever it is.
It will create a new temporary solution and project with nothing but
the executable in it, you have to manually open files (I drag from a
separate Explorer window). But you can set breakpoints and step and
have full source code debugging.
