The boost C++ installer doesn't work anymore for some days, so we cannot use the installer anymore, so we have to compile from sources, but scons cannot determine where boost c++ is installed.
Giving instructions on readme file to integrate boost C++ could be a good thing.

Try simply copying all the header files (.hpp) to include/boost. Or all the source, it doesn't matter that much. NVDA only uses the headers, from what I know.

Right, thanks. Here is the precize procedure:

  1. Download the source archive and extract it.
  2. copy the subfolder nammed "boost" into include directory. It is the folder where there are hpp files.
  3. That's it!

I just tried the Boostpro Boost 1.47 installer and it works fine for me. I selected nearest SourceForge mirror and only selected the headers. Did you try another mirror?

Yes I tryed to select another miror, and it didn't work.
I wrote to Boostpro.com, they answer me they won't provide the installer anymore...

Hi,
I'm tempted to close this ticket, as Boost libs are no longer needed in source code.
