Error building bondcpp on Windows.

I'm trying to add the bondcpp package to an existing workspace on Windows using the win_ros tools. I'm running the Hydro version of the tools and have built the core ROS modules following the instructions on the Wiki. I'm using 64-bit Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2012 Update 4.

I've tried adding the bond_core package to both the core ROS workspace and to my project workspace. The bond packages compile without error, but only a DLL is generated. The other ROS packages build both a DLL and a static lib file. When building bondcpp in the ROS workspace, my project fails to compile due to the find_package call in CMake failing to find the bondcpp.lib library (since it doesn't exist).

When I include the bond_core package in my project workspace I get the following output:

Bond_core appears to build successfully and generates DLL files for all of the packages. It doesn't generate a static lib, however, and the following package that attempts to link against bondcpp fails to compile. I can't see any ... (more)

This doesn't sound right. Have you tried looking into it? -> seems to be Boost related. See How do I build boost with new Visual Studio 2013 preview? on SO.

I had assumed it was because the win_ros tools don't officially support VS2012. I had not looked into it. The boost packages and the other ROS packages build fine and work. They produce the same warning so I'm not sure it's related, but I'll look into it. Thanks.

I don't think it's really important. I'm not sure why nmake returns that error though. Perhaps @Daniel Stonier knows.
