Building Boost C++ libraries with Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 (Visual Studio Community 2015)
Today we will build Boost C++ libraries (http://www.boost.org/) using Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 compiler (Visual Studio Community 2015).
We will build both 32 bit and 64 bit binaries.
Download and extract files
Download the latest release (at this time Boost 1.59.0 hosted on SourceForge) http://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/1.59.0/boost_1_59_0.zip/download
Extract the files to a directory of your choice; I use /lib_source/
I like to keep my third party libraries separate from my own projects. I copy the final compiled binary files to a separate location, depending on the compiler used. For MSVC 2015 the folder is /lib_msvc14 (for MinGW it might be /lib_mingw47).
