    Angry VC++ using boost

    Hi,

    I'm not sure this is where to ask this question, but here goes.

    I'm using visual C++ 2010 express edition and am trying to incorporate boost. In particular, I'm trying to use trim.hpp but I keep getting the following linker error:

    MSVCMRT.lib(locale0_implib.obj) : error LNK2022: metadata operation failed (8013118D) : Inconsistent layout information in duplicated types (std._String_const_iterator<char,std::char_traits<char>,std::allocator<char> >): (0x02000019).


    Boost was installed using the BoostPro 1.43 installer (because the 1.44 kept bombing).

    My project settings are currently:

    1.) Common language Runtime Support = "Common language Runtime Support (/clr)"
    2.) Use of MFC = "Use Standard Windows Libraries"
    3.) Use of ATL = "Not Using ATL"
    4.) Runtime Libary = "Multi-threaded DLL (/MD)"
    5.) Precompiled Headers = "Not Using Precompiled Headers"



    I think maybe the project settings are to blame but I've tried every combination that I can think of and have tried the suggestions that I've seen on line, but none work. I've included the boost library in the vc++ include path, so I know the compiler is finding the needed boost files.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: VC++ using boost

    No Boost install is really required in order to use trip.hpp as that (from the Boost string algorithms library I presume) is a header-only library. All you have to do is put Boost in the include path to use it.

    Given your use of CLR (do you really need that? You usually don't unless you're targeting .NET), I'm suspicious of the associated paragraph here:

    Re: VC++ using boost

    Thanks for replying Lindley,

    Prior to using the installer program, I did simply copy the .hpp files to the include folder but had the exact same linker error.

    I tried turning off clr, but I get many many errors:

    Hi Lindley,

    I finally got it. I had to start a new project and keep all the default project settings and it worked!

    Thanks.

    It looks like you may have accidentally created a Managed C++ project rather than a native C++ project.
