Subject: [Boost-build] Link Library
From: EricTheRed01 (ericbel_2_at_[hidden])

I'm using Code Blocks and I set my Project->Build Options.. -> Linker
Settings -> link libaries -> Add:

and I added "boost_*-mgw34-mt-1_37". However, when I compile my simple
project (below) I get, a windows popup box with this message.

"This application has failed to start because
boost_filesystem-mgw34-mt-1_37.dll was not found. Re-installing the
application may fix this problem."

My code is
namespace bfs=boost::filesystem;
int main()
        bfs::path p("second.cpp");

Any ideas? Did I set my link library properly? Can Code blocks actually
associate the * as a wildcard for all libraries? And why is this DLL not in
the lib folder of installation path??

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
