Boost autolink searches for wrong MSVC Version in QtCreator/qmake



  • Hi!

    I'm using QtCreator, QtBeta5 2 and boost C++ libraries with Visual C++ 2010 Express. I tried to compile the project which uses boost::regex and got the message that 'libboost_regex-vc90-mt-gd-1_52.lib' cannot be found.

    Why does it search for old compiler version VC90 and not VC100 for Visual C++ 2010? Is there any way to set the version?

    Here's the original message from QtCreator's build:

    :-1: error: LNK1104: cannot open file 'libboost_regex-vc90-mt-gd-1_52.lib'

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.
