Hello group,

I am using VS6 on Windows2000 and soon .NET2005. So we are planning to
migrate to boost 1.33.1 first with VS6 and then move all our applications to
VS8 (including boost). So, I am in the process of writing an installation /
migration procedure of boost for our "3rd party manager". In summary, I want
to do :
1- build boost with the right toolset
2- build regression tool
3- run regression tests of boost
4- validate regression result with boost specification from
5- integrate the newly compiled boost in our application
6- correct compilation error if any change where made in the public
7- run our application regression test
8- submit to our version control system

I am having hard time to do all this :) So :

1- I want to know your opinion about this. Does it seems like a good
2- I am unable to build the regression tools with VS6. Is It normal? Am I
missing something?
3- I am unable to find a boost 1.33.1 regression test. Only Head, 1.33.0 or
4- Does the result on my PC should be the same then the one posted on boost
site? It seems like it might be different. By analysing
discovered that for the same toolset we can have different results
(goncalo-vc8 and RudbekAssociates have different results for vc-8_0 toolset)
It is normal?

Thank you for any feedback, help or comments.
