I'm trying to get the Boost thread library working under Microsoft .Net,
here is what I've done and the problems I'm seeing.

I am currnetly using the regex lib and the date/time classes, which are
working. I now want to start creating threads so I follow the given
example, and started to get linker errors for xtime_get and
boost::thread::sleep. So I look around, and do the bjam -sTOOLS=msvc in
the appropriate threads directory and get no errors. It still won't
 I notice that the only boost*.lib files in my vc7\lib dir were from
boost_regexp, so I copy 4 files boost_thread(d).dll/lib into that
directory. I then explicitely add boost_threadd.lib into the project's
link. Ok, so now my application compiles AND links, but it wants
boost_threadd.dll when it executes. So I copy boost_threadd.dll into the
projects Debug directory wehre the .exe compiles to. Now when I run it, I
get a dialog box saying the application failed because
"boost_regex_vc7_mdid.dll" can not be loaded! the regex stuff was working
FINE and I don't think I did anyhting to change it.

So can someone shed some light on this for me, please ? Why does it now
want the boost_regex dll? Thanks for any input.. if I've missed some
crucial documentation somewhere, sorry.
