Why can't you use VCVARS32.BAT? If it was installed by an admin it
should be correct. You should be able to use it without modification. Is
it installed to a non-standard location? If so did you set MSVC_ROOT as
described in: http://www.boost.org/tools/build/v1/msvc-tools.html ?

No. Did you get any errors while building?

Nothing other than the examples that come with the individual libraries.
But something as simple as...

You can use it like any other external library package. You'll need to configure your compiler accordingly. Adding to the include and library paths of your projects. http://www.boost.org/more/getting_started.html -- -- Grafik - Don't Assume Anything -- Redshift Software, Inc. - http://redshift-software.com -- rrivera/acm.org - grafik/redshift-software.com - 102708583/icq
