vixDiskLibSample in VDDK 6.5 won't compile

Trying to compile vixDiskLibSample in VDDK 6.5 and getting errors.


I have not had this problem with other (previous) versions of VDDK (notably 5.5.4, 5.5.5, 6.0.0, 6.0.1 and 6.0.2).


Using Microsoft Visual Studio 2015.


Downloaded and extracted VMware-vix-disklib-6.5.0-4604867.x86_64.


Opened and upgraded ...\VMware-vix-disklib-6.5.0-4604867.x86_64\doc\sample\vixDiskLibSample.sln.


Opened Configuration Manager for VS project and set Platform to x64.


Downloaded and extracted boost_1_62_0.zip (source: http://www.boost.org/users/history/version_1_62_0.html) to ...\VMware-vix-disklib-6.5.0-4604867.x86_64\doc\sample\boost.


Set VS project to include ...\VMware-vix-disklib-6.5.0-4604867.x86_64\doc\sample\boost\*.*.

Getting the following errors on build:

Could this be because I am using the wrong version of Boost? Or, could the VMware developers who tested vixDiskLibSample in VDDK 6.5 have made custom edits to the Boost headers in their development environment?

Any help is much appreciated.

Note: VDDK 6.5 documentation does not say anything about Boost other than the following:

Open Source Components

VDDK contains the following open source components, with license types indicated:

- Boost (BSD style license)

Better late than never Smiley Wink

I ran into the same issue and discovered that you need to add an additional boost library to the Makefile: -lboost_thread

INCLUDEDIR=../../../include

LIBDIR=../../../lib64

ifdef VIX_AIO_BUFPOOL_SIZE

CXXFLAGS+= -DVIX_AIO_BUFPOOL_SIZE=$(VIX_AIO_BUFPOOL_SIZE)

endif

all: vix-disklib-sample vix-mntapi-sample

vix-disklib-sample: vixDiskLibSample.cpp

$(CXX) $(CXXFLAGS) -o $@ -I$(INCLUDEDIR) -L$(LIBDIR) $? -ldl -lvixDiskLib -lboost_thread

vix-mntapi-sample:  vixDiskLibSample.cpp

$(CXX) $(CXXFLAGS) -o $@ -DFOR_MNTAPI -I$(INCLUDEDIR) -L$(LIBDIR) $? -ldl -lvixDiskLib -lvixMntapi -lboost_thread

clean:
