    Yes, only the later versions support this. Earlier (e.g. VS .Net and VS 6) didn't. I'm not sure if it came into VS2005 or VS2008.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    If anyone is interested (or stumbles across this thread in search of a 64-bit free C++ compiler on Windows), I have built a working toolchain here (includes Boost)

    http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...orum_id=723797

    using all the latest stuff from SVN (as of this writing, 2008-11-03, of course).

    In that it says
    (~26MB, decompresses to ~460MB)
    I think you have a typo there.

    That is NOT a typo . The compression ratio was something like 5%.

    It was probably due to the amount of duplicated stuff (and I used the highest compression level with 7zip).
