Inspired by a talk on Boost by Dave Abrahams at SD West, I downloaded and
attempted to install the Boost libraries on Windows XP. The version I have
is 1.33.1.
(I checked the documentation included in the download, I visited the website
documentation, and I searched this list's archives, but I can't find a
reference to this issue.) When I try to build, the build process will stop
at seemingly random points with a "failed to write command file" error.
Sometimes it builds many libraries, sometimes just a handful. I'm using
Here are the build commands I've tried:
bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7" "-sALL_LOCATE_TARGET=c:\boost_1_33_1" install
bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7" install
bjam -sTOOLS=vc7 install
bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7" "--prefix=c:\boost" install
The results are the same, but, as I said, it seemingly random points during
the compilation. Anyone have any ideas as to what I may be doing wrong?
Thank you very much.
