Move emulation in C++98 does not support automatic conversions from
derived to base classes.

Try converting to FooAPtr first:

#include <boost/move/unique_ptr.hpp>
#include <boost/container/vector.hpp>

class FooA
     FooA() {}

     virtual ~FooA() {}

     virtual void execute() {}

class FooB : public FooA
     FooB() {}

     virtual void execute() {}

int main()
     typedef boost::movelib::unique_ptr<FooA> FooAPtr;
     typedef boost::movelib::unique_ptr<FooB> FooBPtr;

     boost::container::vector<FooAPtr> fooVector;

     FooBPtr fooBPtr(new FooB);
     FooAPtr fooAPtr(boost::move(fooBPtr));


     return 0;
