Boost Pre-Built Binaries

Boost Pre-Built Binaries

I've created Windows binaries (32-bit and 64-bit) for the Boost libraries with Visual Studio - VC8 SP1, VC9 SP1, VC10 SP1 (starting with 1.43), and VC11 (starting with 1.52) - and packaged them up. These are just the binaries, to use them, you will need to have the same version of Boost already installed. You can get it here.

Starting with 1.54 things are changing quite a bit. I'm now uploading my builds to the sourceforge site as well, so you can get them there under the boost-binaries folder in the file manager, alongside the source releases. I will continue posting them here as well, but just a link to the directory containing the files and hashes.

Starting with 1.49, the zlib and bzip2 libraries have been built in for use with the iostreams library.

Unfortunately there were a lot of errors with 1.45.0 in VC 7.1, so I'm no longer supporting that. Some of the libraries built for it, and those are included, but starting with 1.46.0 it will not even be attempted. I recommend upgrading to a modern Visual Studio (or using 1.44).

You can get all the historical checksums for these files here: SHA256SUMS-all signed. The file containing them is signed by my personal key: Thomas Kent (Tom) teeks99@yahoo.com.

Donations

If you want to make a donation towards the windows builds of boost you can send them with this paypal link.

Donations will go towards virtual machine time for the builds as well as for vm time to run the regular unit tests (volunteers always welcome).
