The code execution cannot proceed because boost_filesystem-vc141-mt-x64-1_66.dll was not found...

Did you see this from a catkin_make or from other steps? Have you run c:\opt\ros\melodic\x64\setup.bat to source the ROS environment?

I see the error with the ros commands like: "roscd roscpp" or "rospack /?" I have not yet tried catkin_make. Yes I did run the setup.bat file. I also installed boost c++ libraries in (C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_66_0) and added it to the windows PATH variable.

@nevillekitala Did you run into the same issue? If the clean install won't help, I would suggest to log an issue on for further troubleshoot. Thanks.
