Wow, how clever!! I removed the explicit linking and added the search path
to both Debug and Release configs (in my case, the path is
'E:\boost_1_40\lib' for all libraries). The Release build still builds and
runs fine. But when I try to launch the Debug build I get a dialog box with
this message:-

" Unable to start program 'F:\MSVCtest_app\debug\MSVCtest_app.exe'
This application has failed to start because the application configuration
is incorrect. Review the manifest file for possible errors. Reinstalling the
application may fix this problem. "

FWIW I only seem to have these two (boost_regex) DLLs:-


but my app's manifest file (for the Debug version) specifies
"Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT". Is one of those DLL's a CRT-debug DLL or
am I missing something?
