Using Boost Asio in an ArchiCad Addon

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello, I'm currently trying to use Boost Asio in one of the examples provided in the DevKit. I simply include the following .hpp in the addon and I get Linking errors.
#include <boost/asio.hpp>

The example I'm using is the 3D_Test.

And this one of the linking errors:

Error 1 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "class boost::system::error_category const & __cdecl boost::system::system_category(void)" (?system_category@system@boost@@YAAEBVerror_category@12@XZ) referenced in function "public: __cdecl boost::system::error_code::error_code(void)" (??0error_code@system@boost@@QEAA@XZ) D:\GRAPHISOFT\API Development Kit 18.3006\Examples\3D_Test - Copy\3D_Test.obj 3D_Test

Can anyone help me with this problem?
If you need any other information feel free to ask.

Additional Information:
Using Windows 8.1, Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 but with the 2010 tools.

Hey, thank you for the help. I was able to fix my problems. I did the following for anyone interested.

First:
using nuget (addon for visual studio) install the packages:
install-package boost
install-package boost_system
Second:
Go to Linker -> Input -> Additional Dependencies add:
ws2_32.lib

Still looking?
