Subject: [Boost-users] Which URL should I use in ExternalProject_Add

Hello all,

I used CMake's ExternalProject_Add to download and build boost in my
project. The URL I used is ''
and it works. However I got an error several days ago like:

CMake Error: Problem with archive_read_open_file(): Unrecognized archive

It seems that what I download by CMake becomes 'HTML document, ASCII text'
rather than 'Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract'. Could you tell me
which URL should I use in ExternalProject_Add?
