We went there already, no? No, that's where we came from in fact. That [see
those warnings pop up the whole time] wasn't very helpful either. I think
at the time it was said that, basically Boost does not support (without
some shortcuts, or being warning tolerant) any versions of VC, released
after the particular boost release in question. Acting as if it's 14.1 [as
you suggest] is probably the easiest [and you can just as well compile with
that (14.1 instead of 14.2), iff installed, as it's unlikely to make a
(noticeable) difference. Until the VC-version number goes from 14.x to
15.0, this will be the case. At that junction this in no longer an option
and you'll have to wait for Boost to catch-up with VC.
