Trying to build boost 1.65.1

Trying to build boost 1.65.1

Trying to build boost 1.65.1 with compiler 17 for visual studio 2017 and I'm getting lots of this:

Sorry for my bluntness I was annoyed that I lost my original post because I didn't enter a title, I cant do anything with my project till I get this fixed.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

 

Shouldn't this:

call "C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\b2_intel-win_17.0_iclvars_intel64 vs2015.cmd" > nul

be vs2017 not vs2015?

I see the compilation errors if I explicitly specify MSVC++ 2015 compatibility mode (i.e. use /Qvc14) but not if I explicitly specify MSVC++ 2017 mode (/Qvc14.1). So the compiler is thinking your reference compiler is MSVC++ 2015 not 2017. variable templates were not supported in VS2015 until update 2 so we don't support them unless your reference compiler is also MSVC++ 2015 Update 2 or later.

I get the same output with /Qvc14.1 and I dont know how to specify a toolset of 14.1 when building boost
if I specify "toolset=intel-17.0" I get the above,
if I specify "toolset=intel" I get: error: No Intel compiler version found!
if I specify "toolset=intel-17.0-14.1" I get: error: Supported msvc versions not known for intel 17.0-14.1

You can find out how to add compiler options from the boost site. start from here: http://www.boost.org/build/doc/html/bbv2/overview/configuration.html

That only tells me how to specify the compiler version (17) not the toolset version (14.1)?

If i specify toolset=intel-17.0-vc141 it gives me: error: msvc 141 not supported for intel toolset version 17.0

CommanderLake,

Thank you for reporting the issue, we will work with the boost community to patch the issue in the future versions.
To add msvc 14.1 support into boost you need to modify line 478 of tools/build/src/tools/intel-win.jam file. Instead of this line:

.iclvars-17.0-supported-vcs = "14.0 12.0 11.0 10.0" ;

Add these ones:

.iclvars-17.0-supported-vcs = "14.1 14.0 12.0 11.0 10.0" ;
.iclvars-version-alias-vc14.1 = vs2017 ;

After that you will be able to use toolset intel-17_0-vc14.1.

Perfect! Thanks, its working now.
