Abolfazl Seyed Javadein
Hello
I want to compile boost on my pc and get it's libs without Boost version number or the name and version number of the compiler
 like "libboost_date_time.lib"

I used :

b2 --without-mpi --build-type=minimal --layout=system

and

b2 --layout=system

but none of them worked for me how can I get Those libs

So, what names did you get with --layout=system?

Why?  If you're using autolinking (which you should be using on Windows)
then the name of the libraries is completely unimportant, since you
don't have to put it into any scripts or project properties.

(And it's in your best interest to include Boost and compiler versions
in those names, to prevent accidentally getting the wrong one.
Mismatches can go quite wrong, sometimes in very subtle and hard to
trace ways.)
