to be honest, I don't know whether Boost.DateTime library works when targeting Windows Runtime. However, the above
error suggests a configuration problem, not the problem with Boost.DateTime source code per se.

Could you describe the steps you've taken? Are you building from Visual Studio, if so, how do you point to Boost
libraries? Maybe, you can provide a small example (e.i. VS solution/project as a zip archive)? If so, can you
send it to me by direct email?
