I am new to boost so bear with me. I used the loader to download and install
Boost, selected all variants and was sucessful running the example program
using Visual Studio C++ Express edition. However, when following the first
tutorial, I get an error, "LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file
'libboost_system-vc90-mt-gd-1_36.lib'". I checked previous threads and found
the one, "[Thread] visual studio hello word multithreading problem" to be
similar. I looked into the \lib directory for the suspect file but did not find
it. I did find a lot of libboost_system-vc80... files though, so I suspect
something is looking for a different version. Is there a simple way to correct
this? Thanks in advance.
