All I have to do is #include <boost/asio.hpp>. I tried boost 1.35 and
boost 1.37 with Visual Studio 2008. If it is included,
InstallShield's RegSpyUI (or it's "Extract COM Interface" step) gets
bad Winsock2 registry settings. When InstallShield applies those
settings, it screws up the machine. Most notably, DNS is disabled.

The registry settings that appear are:


I don't know where they come from. I'm still trying to figure it
out. If anyone has any advice, I'd be grateful.
