## [Discuss-gnuradio] problem in boost in Windows 8 OS

```Dear all

I have tried to install the out of tree module "howto" (the code is attached)
in the Gnuradio. However, it seems that "boost" software is not working
correctly (I DO NOT KNOW WHY?).

I have used the following command to install the module

mkdir build
cd build/
cmake ../      (I got an error in this command)

"boost required to compile howto"

To fix this problem

I have modified the cmake command exactly as in

To make it clear, I have used the following commands

1. unpack boost_1_55_0.zip file in "C:\boost" directory
2. cd c:\boost\boost_1_55_0
3. bootstrap
--with-program_options --with-filesystem --with-system --layout=versioned

I think, this installs boost correctly

Once boost is installed, I have used the following commands to install the
"howto" module

mkdir build
cd build/
cmake -DBOOST_ROOT=c:\boost\boost_1_55_0\opt\boost_1_55_0
-DBoost_INCLUDE_DIR=c:\boost\boost_1_55_0\opt\boost_1_55_0\include\boost-1_55\
-DBoost_LIBRARY_DIRS=c:\boost\boost_1_55_0\opt\boost_1_55_0\lib  ../

With this command, I also get the same error (boost not found).

Note that I am using command line on "Windows 8 operating system".

Do you think that the problem arises because I am using windows 8 OS, or
Should I install GNURADIO, CMAKE and Boost in some specific orders and
directories.

Any help is appreciated.

best,
