P.S. it looks like building boost with msvc is fully supported:

building boost is not a problem, I have a problem to tell qmake where the include files are, since it does not find them.

you should pass to qmake these options

INCPATH+="/usr/local/include" LIBS+="-L/usr/local/lib -lboost_regex"

I am not using linux, so it reads

debug: LIBS += -Llib/boost/regex/mingw/debug -lboost_regex-mgw34-mt-d-1_40 release:LIBS += -Llib/boost/regex/mingw/release -lboost_regex-mgw34-mt-1_40

yes, it's the same, I just meant that instead of polluting the .pro file you can pass these options to qmake at the command line :)

note that I copy the library file to a new location, because the compilation destination path of boost is very strange.

The include is added via

INCLUDEPATH +=  ../boost_1_40_0

or the full path. However during compilation the boost library headers are not found.

you have to put in the INCLUDEPATH (which I usually write as INCPATH, are you sure it's the same?) the path where the boost subdirectory is.

For instance, if regex.hpp is in


then you need to specify as include path


since boost header files are included as follows

#include <boost/regex.hpp>

As for the compilation and installation of boost you can still refer to that blog post since those flags are for bootstrap and bjam anyway.

I understand the path-thing. In my case the file regex.hpp is in

which is why have set up
INCLUDEPATH += H:/matthias/Documents/Dev/CPP/SVN/library/source/boost_1_40_0/

but that does not work. The error in qtcreator is:

H:/matthias/Documents/Dev/CPP/SVN/library/source/source-highlight-3.1.2/lib/srchilite/substfun.h:13: boost/regex.hpp: No such file or directory

The compilation output however does not include this path, which I do not understand: g++ -c -g -frtti -fexceptions -mthreads -Wall -DABSOLUTEDATADIR=\"/usr/local/share/source-highlight/\" -DVERSION=\"3.1.2\" -DLIBRARY_VERSION=\"3.0.0\" -DPACKAGE=\"source-highlight\" -DRELATIVEDATADIR=\"../share/source-highlight\" -DQT_DLL -DQT_GUI_LIB -DQT_CORE_LIB -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -I'c:/Programme/Qt/SDK/2009.04/qt/include/QtCore' -I'c:/Programme/Qt/SDK/2009.04/qt/include/QtGui' -I'c:/Programme/Qt/SDK/2009.04/qt/include' -I'c:/Programme/Qt/SDK/2009.04/qt/include/ActiveQt' -I'debug' -I'c:/Programme/Qt/SDK/2009.04/qt/mkspecs/win32-g++' -o debug/substfun.o substfun.cpp

have you written INCLUDEPATH in the .pro file? Or are you passing it to qmake at the command line?

Please, also try with INCPATH instead of INCLUDEPATH.


P.S. at least this is not my fault, but qmake's one ;)
