Yes: the library 'libboost_regex-vc71-s-1_31.lib' is the following variant:

Release runtime library.
Single threaded.
Static runtime library.
*Not* an STLPort build.


1) your app is apparently not being built with STLPort in it's include path,
and given the subject line I assume you want it to be.
2) STLPort does not support the single threaded runtime out the box, so you
will have to switch to one of the multithreaded runtimes.
3) If you use a debug runtime, then I suspect you will also have to define
__STL_DEBUG when building as that's the STLPort setting that Boost uses by
