Subject: [Boost-users] Fatal runtime error when using Boost in a native static library referenced by a mixed dll
From: Dario Ramos (dario_ramos_at_[hidden])

I refactored a native C++ static library to use boost::thread and
boost::asio instead of the Windows API. This static library is referenced
by a C++/CLI dll built with the /clr switch; it acts as a wrapper for the
managed upper layers to use.

I use Boost inside native C++ dlls referenced by C++/CLI dlls and that
works fine, but this particular scenario is a first. I suspect that Boost
and C++/CLI don't play nice together, since I had to be careful to use the
PIMPL idiom to avoid boost headers from being indirectly included in
C++/CLI code. But now that I have to forcibly link a Boost lib with my
C++/CLI dll, things have gone awry. Is this a supported usage for Boost?

My environment: Boost 1.53.0, Visual Studio Professional 2012 Version
11.0.61030.00 Update 4, Windows 7 x64.

The error is an EEFileLoadException in KernelBase.dll. It happens right
after my C++/CLI dll is loaded into memory. Here's the callstack:
