Installing pre-built binaries on Windows with Docker

Boost - Users mailing list
Hi,

I tried installing pre-built 1.67 binaries from https://dl.bintray.com/boostorg/release/1.67.0/binaries/ in a Windows Server Docker container but am running into an issue where the installation does not complete.  I ran the installer exe in silent mode.  A lot of the files including headers are installed, but not the lib directory with the binaries.  The Inno Setup log does not indicate an error, it just stops writing in the middle of the installation.

Does anyone know why installation does not complete?  Has anyone been able to install pre-built libraries in a Windows Docker container?  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

Not sure, there's lots that isn't very good about inno setup, but I haven't found a better installer creator.

I'd recommend trying the 7-zip file and handling it yourself.
