Dear developers, dear Ion,
We are experiencing issues on Windows where boost::interprocess relies
on a certain event in the system event log to get the system's boot-up
time. This has proven to be unreliable, because that event is not always
present in the log. In that case, initialization of boost::interprocess
Several bug reports exist for that issue, e.g. [1, 2].
Report  contains a proposed fix to use GetTickCount64() and there is
an open PR with an alternative fix to fall back to WMI mechanisms . I
understand that the fix  would need some polishing, because
GetTickCount64() is not available in pre-Vista.
