Cannot open file 'libboost_date_time-vc110-mt-gd-1_54.lib'

I can not build vcmi in Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Express for Desktop,
and I got vcmi code from github,
the error is :
Error 2 error LNK1104: cannot open file ‘libboost_date_time-vc110-mt-gd-1_54.lib’ C:\Users\maben\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\vcmi-master\lib\LINK VCMI_lib

my bootstrap is boost_1_54_0,and I got success message:

The Boost C++ Libraries were successfully built!

Hi rzc1111,
the error message is pretty clear — linker cannot find the libs — possible reasons are:

  1. You havent set “Library Directories” for Boost in Visual, cf. instructions … ry_folders
  2. You set the wrong location (it has to be the fodler that contains ‘libboost_date_time-vc110-mt-gd-1_54.lib’ and other *.lib files)
  3. You set it in the wrong place, eg. in properties of a single project, where it has to be a shared property sheet or global system setting.

Thanks Tow!
I got a new problem,I can not build gt5&opengl on vs 2012, :frowning:

If this still doesn’t help you, please wait a week or two. I’m working on packages for Visual Studio 2013 that should make the building environment setup way easier.
