So, my days with the Boost library begin. I installed BoostPro's free binaries package shindig for my compiler (MSVC++9). Now, the header-only libraries work. The path is set up correctly. However, if I write an empty program that includes <boost/thread.hpp>, I receive a linking error:
That file is in boost/lib. I can see it. I extended the path into lib, but the compiler still can't seem to find it. Either that or it just can't open it. What might the problem be?
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'libboost_thread-vc90-mt-1_36.lib'
-try to open the file with a text editor yourself
-check the properties of your project under "Linker" / "command line". Is the path really there and pointing to the right folder?
-Ah. There it is. It won't look for libraries where the includes are, duh. Thanks.
