I run this in a terminal:-
cd tools/build
./b2 install --prefix=~/boost/boost_1_64_0
In Qt Creator I have this path set
BOOST_DIR = ~/boost/boost_1_64_0/
BOOST_LIBDIR = ~/boost/boost_1_64_0/libs/
When compiling I get this error.
:-1: error: /home/me/boost/boost_1_64_0/ does not contain a Boost installation

No  Boost (executable) appears
The clue is in the title of the boost web-page "Boost C++ Libraries", i.e. there are only libraries (to link your app to), no executable(s) (unless you're building/running the tests).
