Thanks for the response, Robert!

Documentation didn't change a bit about it since boost 1.37, against
which I was able to compile my code.
Quote from the doc
"Note that the implemenation of this functionality requires that the
|BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT| macro appear *after* and the inclusion of any
archive class headers for which code is to be instantiated.
||So, *the best way to use |BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT| is to include it in the
same module which implements the class*."

This is exactly as I did.
This is what I have for standalone exe-application:

In stdafx.h:
#include <boost/archive/binary_iarchive.hpp>
#include <boost/archive/binary_oarchive.hpp>
#include <boost/serialization/base_object.hpp>
#include <boost/serialization/vector.hpp>
#include <boost/serialization/export.hpp>

In SomeClass.cpp:
#include "stdafx.h"
#include "SomeClass.h"

Did I miss something?
