Hi Robert,

Op den Middeweken 10 März 2010 Klock 00:21:46 hett Robert Ramey schreven:

Fails here with gcc-4.4 and msvc-9.0, too.

It seems that the library names coded in the test are not those generated by
Boost.Build. For a quick test I've just inserted the generated names and the
test start to run.

The gcc test then triggers an assert, but it at least loads the plugin.

The best solution would be to force Boost.Build to always use
"dll_polymorphic_derived2.dll" as the library name. Otherwise you could
compose the library name using the autolink-magic.

I've cross-mailed this to the Boost-Build list, in case someone has a better
idea or even a solution.
