    Getting Boost Libraries to work with Netbeans and MinGW

    I'm getting this error

    Code:
    g++.exe: error: date_time: No such file or directory   make[2]: *** [dist/Debug/MinGW-Windows/boosttest.exe] Error 1  make[1]: *** [.build-conf] Error 2   make: *** [.build-impl] Error 2

    whenever I try to run this example: Examples - 1.53.0 using boost libraries. I've followed the steps here Netbeans IDE 7.2.1: How to add the c++ boost library - Stack Overflow and I don't see any red error marks, just that one runtime error. I've read on the boost site that Mingw isn't supported but I've seen tutorials for building it in eclipse so I'm assuming that there is a way to get it to work.I'm using windows 7 by the way.

    Nevermind. I was able to figure it out. All I had to do was to delete my library name under "Project -> properties -> Linker ->Libraries -> Add option -> Other -> -l%libname%" and everything worked properly. Could someone lock this thread?
