I don't have access to that platform, so I just go what people tell me,
BOOST_NO_CWCHAR should be defined only if the platform is missing a
conforming version of the <cwchar> header.

That's correct, if there is no <cwchar> header then regex can't provide wide
character support.

OK, so can you use wregex etc now?

If not check to see if BOOST_NO_CWCTYPE or BOOST_NO_STD_WSTRING are defined,
and if so comment out these defines as well...
