Have you tried searching for ERROR in Boost and your CRT headers?

In 1.53 at least this is not defined by any Boost headers.

But if you're on Windows then this *is* defined by the Windows SDK. So
it is never valid to use this as an identifier in programs compiled for
Windows (or at least, not without undefining it first).

The Windows SDK defines a very large number of such macros, several even
in PascalCase. So you always need to watch out for these.
