I don't know what to say except it "works for me". Sounds like a typical
binary compatibility issue though. Two things you could try:

1) cd into libs/regex/test and do a "bjam regex_regress release" and check
the test passes OK.
2) Create a static lib project in your IDE, add libs/regex/src/*.cpp to it
and set the build options the same as your .exe. Then set the define
BOOST_REGEX_NO_LIB in your .exe's project settings and add the static lib as
a reference and rebuild.

HTH, John.
