Hi Edward, there's been a development here after I flagged this up to

I sent them a small test project and it seems that for VS2019 16.11.0
the problem only happens for an x86 build (if I build as x64 it works
okay). Going back to the command line you sent me last week, is there
some way I can adapt it to force an x86 build and alternatively, an x64
build? I could then swap between them and see if there's any difference
here. And it looks like John Maddock might be onto something when he
suggested modifying 'boost/integer/common_factor_rt.hpp'. I'd be happy
to try modifying it temporarily if John can suggest something... Thanks,
