Hi again,
I finally got to compile winros with another Boost version (in the end it was just ridiculously easy...), but now I don't know how to substitute the command


described here with winros_make, since I don't know how to pass those arguments to winros_make so that it redirects them to the internal call to cmake.

Is there anybody who solved this or has suggestions? I read about putting the arguments in either a configure.cmake or findboost.cmake file, but since I'm not yet familiar with cmake, I wasn't able to handle that by now.

Greets and big thanks in advance!

You can see here the three steps for a winros_xxx process. After the winros_init_build step you'll have a config.cmake file which you can edit, change and add any new variables for the cmake build you want (this is equivalent to piling them onto the catkin_make or cmake command line).

I probably missed the --install step, but already worked around this by calling nmake install from within the build library. Thanks a lot anyway!
