is rtti enabled? VC++ IDE doesn't enable it by default.

  Hi Jeff,


  I installed Boost 1.32 on my computer (Windows Server 2003 and Visual Studio .NET 2003). A directory: \boost_1_32_0 was created. In \boost_1_32_0\libs\serialization\vc7ide, I found the projects for building serialization library and test examples. I can build the library (libboost_serialization.lib) and examples, and they run well. All examples are Windows console applications.


  Then I created an MFC application, linked it with the library. In Document class, I did a test similar to the one presented in demo_xml.cpp and demo_xml.hpp:




  #include "stdafx.h"

  #include "MFCTests.h"

  #include "MFCTestsDoc.h"

  #include <iostream>

  #include <sstream>

  #include <string>

  #include <boost/archive/tmpdir.hpp>

  #include <boost/archive/xml_oarchive.hpp>


  #include "demo_xml.hpp"




  void CMFCTestsDoc::OnTestSerialize()


      bus_stop *bs0 = new bus_stop_corner(

          gps_position(34, 135, 52.560f),

          gps_position(134, 22, 78.30f),

          "24th Street", "10th Avenue"



      std::string filename(boost::archive::tmpdir());

      filename += "/demo.xml";


      std::ofstream ofs(filename.c_str());


      boost::archive::xml_oarchive oa(ofs);

      oa << BOOST_SERIALIZATION_NVP(*bs0);





  Execution fails in last statement with message:


  Unhandled exception at 0x77e55dea in MFCTests.exe: Microsoft C++ exception: __non_rtti_object @ 0x0012e800.


  The build was debug build, application and library were build with runtime library option "Multi-threaded Debug (/MTd)". I tried to use different options such as "Multi-threaded Debug DLL (/MDd)", it failed the same way.


  In MSDN (, it discussed Boost for Visual Studio C++. It stated that Boost works well with VC++ 7.1. Of course we know it doesn't work well with previous VC++ such as VC++ 6.0 which I tried and failed badly.

  I extensively use boost 1.32 serialization in MFC projects with no problems. You'll need to provide more info on your problem: some code, exact error messages, etc.


  So is Boost really mentioned in MSDN?

    I installed Boost 1.32 in Windows with Visual Studio .NET 2003. I tested serialization provided in "vc7ide" project, it runs successfully. Of course, all test projects are "Console", no MFC library involved. Then I used the same library in MFC project, the execution failed in function:




    From MSDN, it was said that Boost is supported in Visual Studio .NET 2003. I labored a week to upgrade our MFC project to Visual Studio .NET 2003 and it still has problem. Any idea? Thanks in advance.
