6. b2 --prefix=c:\boost_libs --toolset=msvc-14.2 --address-model=64 --architecture=x86 --runtime-link=static,shared --link=static threading=multi install
7. boost will be installed in c:\boost_libs
8. In VS2019 --> Solution Explorer --> "Project" --> Properties --> C++ --> Additional Include Directories --> Add c:\boost_libs\include
