    Problem with Boost Libraries

    I have an existing application that requires boost libraries. So I downloaded boost library "boost_1_35_0" from this website

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/boos.../boost/1.35.0/

    and extracted it in program folder

    Code:
    C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_35_0
    Now the compiler is unable to find this library

    Code:
    libboost_regex-vc80-mt-1_35.lib
    I searched for this library everywhere including the boost folder where I extracted it, and it wase'nt present. So is there any batch file in command prompt do I have to run in order to create this library file?

    Thanks in Advance

    OK thanks I tried steps mentioned here

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/tips/B...libraries.aspx

    but instead of "libboost_regex-vc80-mt-1_35.lib" it only creates "boost_regex-vc80-mt-gd-1_35.lib"

    Re: Problem with Boost Libraries

    Which command line did you use?
    Probably "link=shared"?
    Try "link=static"
