Subject: [Boost-users] Installation issue: cannot pass the last test in tutorial,

I'm a novice here. Sorry if this issue has been posted already. I've searched the archived in the mailing list, and did some searches by google, but couldn't find anything relevant.

I've just tried to install boost library to use with Visual Studio 2005. I followed all the steps indicated in the tutorial "getting started on Windows". Everything seems to work fine until the last step, section 6 "link your program to boost library".

I did copy/paste the example in this section, and follow the instructions for the configuration. Then I built it with success. However, when I tested the program with the command line like suggested in section 6.4, but it failed. It keep saying that "the system cannot execute the specific program".

The command line I used is:

"C:\Documents and Settings\A_M\My documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\example\debug\example.exe" < "C:\jayne.txt"

is this right?

Btw, in doubt of a wrong step somewhere, I tried another tutorial that I found on internet at step 1,
(it's supposed to install boost for VS2008, but I thinks it should be not much different). However it didn't fix the problem. Moreover, it made the boost folder increase from around 900Mb to 8.9Gb???? Something must be wrong?

Help me please,

Sorry for the long post and many thanks in advance,
