Yes, both our console and windows apps run under XP, Vista, 7 & 8. All
of our tests pass, and our QA group has not found problems.

I will probably try building boost and Qt when I get a chance following
the "Targeting from the Command Line" steps described at:


Do you know if someone has worked on it?

I would be willing to help with it, but currently, to me, is just black magic, and I don't know for sure where to look. I think the build configuration should remain unchanged, since the compiler is supposed to have exactly the same capabilities as mainstream VC11 (except for C++amp, which should not concern boost yet), but the command lines have to be adapted. Could you point me to the right place to modify?

Thank you,
