I installed V 1.54.0 and used the Boost "bootstrap" and .\b2 to install libraries automatically. When I put the #include statements in my program, two of the three boost libraries load and the File System generates a Link error. I have a Xeon processor and I am running Win 7 x64. I have VS2012 with version 11.60601.10 SP3. I have set my target platform as Any CPU and x64.

After running b2, this file should exist in BOOST_ROOT/stage/lib.
Did you add this directory to the library search path?
Also, if you're building for x64, you may need to use
address-model=64 when running b2.
