BoostPro Consulting offers an installer for Windows ( ) that tends to lag the official releases
by some time. I've built Boost under Windows before, but sometimes I've had
trouble (especially when I've wanted to build only parts of it), so I figured
that this time maybe I'd wait for the installer and do things the lazy way :-)

I'm sure I'm not the only one who looks forward to hearing your results :-)
