I would like to get a square peg in a round hole too!

Like John Maddock already wrote you, Boost-1.47, released 11 July 2011,
pre-dates VS2017, by almost 6 years [year with major upheaval in C++
standards and compiler development]. So there is no way to build a reliable
Boost-1.47 with VS2017, released 7 March 2017.

Maybe you are using a heavily modified [or certified] Boost and are
therefor bound to that version [but then you should use a compiler that
matched [and tested] that release (VS2010), because then the bugs (in
Boost) will balance out the bugs in the compiler/libs], but otherwise, the
best thing is to use the latest and the greatest.
