    I downloaded boost1.35.0 and built it with following command:

    bjam --toolset=msvc-7.1 --variant=release --threading=multi --
    link=shared --with-system stage

    and it failed to compile, error message is:


    E:\software\development\boost_1_35_0\boost_1_35_0>bjam --
    toolset=msvc-7.1 --variant=release --threading=multi --link=shared --

    I added the system\src\error_code.cpp to an empty project and can
    compiled it with success. So I guess there must be something wrong
    with the default compile options, but I donnot know how to fix it.
    Could anybody help me out? Any help would be appreciated!

    [SNIP]

    That's a MSVC problem, one of the project settings, I haven't figured it out
    yet. Same source code with different project settings will compile without
    any warnings. Since it's microsoft speicfic try
    microsoft.public.vc.language
