Is a file by that name actually present? I believe this name means "static release MT",
and I have no idea if installer includes that. Defining BOOST_ALL_DYN_LINK preprocessor
symbol in project properties will cause "shared release MT" to be used, which is something
that I'd surely expect to be present.
