unable to compile boost as debug static

Boost - Build mailing list

Hi guys,

 

to make a long story short: I am unable to compile the boost source 1.72 as debug static in a Microsoft Environment.

 

I tried and fiddled with all kinds of command lines, but to no success. I do have release lib’s, as desired.

 

Regarding the documentation, the command should be:

b2 --prefix=C:\Boost toolset=msvc-14.2 address-model=64 architecture=x86 variant=debug debug-symbols=on link=static threading=multi runtime-link=static --build-type=complete stage

 

That’s a variation of the successful release build, that I have. No matter what I write in the command line, I get always 2 variants of the library:

 

libboost_xxx-vc142-mt-s-x32-1_72.lib

libboost_xxx-vc142-mt-s-x64-1_72.lib

 

What I need, what my compiler tells me to produce, is:

 

Severity

Code

Description

Project

File

Line

Suppression State

Error

LNK1104

cannot open file 'libboost_filesystem-vc142-mt-sgd-x64-1_72.lib'

bitcoin-cli

Z:\projects\Bitcoin\bitcoin\build_msvc\bitcoin-cli\LINK

1

 

 

So I am desperately trying to build this library, without success.

 

I have studied and tested:

https://boostorg.github.io/build/manual/develop/index.html

https://studiofreya.com/2015/05/20/building-boost-1-58-for-32-bit-and-64-bit-architectures-with-visual-studio-2013/

 

By the way, there are many dead links on https://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_72_0/more/getting_started/windows.html , especially when it comes to the reference of the build documentation. For example https://www.boost.org/build/doc/html/bbv2/overview/invocation.html is referenced as a link under „see the Boost.Build documentation“ at several places, which is a dead link. But this just as a side note.

 

My environment is:

Windows 10, latest

MS Visual Studio 2019, latest

Boost 1.72 source from boost.org (https://www.boost.org/users/history/version_1_72_0.html)

 

Thanks for any help

 

Alex
