This message is issued by Boost.Config, not by VS.

One could argue that the version check there should be >= 1920 as these
minor updates cause too much fuss.

To avoid the problem of not being clear where this message comes from, I
have proposed the addition of BOOST_PRAGMA_MESSAGE to Boost.Config:

which prepends the file and the line to the message, so that you could get

../boost-git/boost\boost/config/compiler/visual.hpp(334): note: Boost.Config
is older...
