CMake could not find boost

Create a new CMakeFiles.txt below in a new folder.

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.7)

set(Boost_DEBUG 1)
set(Boost_DETAILED_FAILURE_MSG 1)

set(Boost_INCLUDE_DIR Y:/L/boost_1_53_0)
set(Boost_LIBRARY_DIR Y:/L/boost_1_53_0/lib)


set(Boost_USE_STATIC_LIBS        ON)
set(Boost_USE_MULTITHREADED      ON)

find_package(Boost 1.53 REQUIRED COMPONENTS
              date_time filesystem iostreams)

include_directories(${Boost_INCLUDE_DIR})
link_directories(${Boost_LIBRARY_DIR})

Adjust Boost_INCLUDE_DIR and Boost_LIBRARY_DIR to your environment and try to switch ON and OFF for Boost_USE_STATIC_LIBS and Boost_USE_MULTITHREADED.
