Boost-Build :

Hi All,

I haven't posted test results tonight because they aren't completed yet! The
V2/serialzation tests are unable to locate the serialization DLL :(. This
meant that Windows displayed an error message dialog informing me of that
fact and not continuing with the build.

This leads me to wonder... is it possible to start the test executable in
one thread and monitor it's progress in the main thread. If the application
exits, great; if it brings up a dialog (and the test is not marked as being
'gui'), grab the text on that dialog (outputting it along with an error
message) and close it (via an IDCANCEL command message) and kill the app;
otherwise, if a timeout occurs, log a timeout and kill the test process.

NOTE: I am not sure how to apply this to other OSes like Linux and Mac.

I will post the next batch of test results once they have completed.
