According to this ,
there should not be any issues, so you probably need to be a bit more
specific about what "xxx boost is not able to communicate to yyy" means in
terms of error-message(s). This assumes the serialization was done with
boost-1.47 (as you can read that 1.42-1.44 have issues, i.e. bug(s)).

But, as a fix/work-around, what about de-serializing [the data you have]
with 1.47 and re-serializing with 1.70?
