I did a build by hand last week after cleaning the build dir, which is what stopped the last automatic build. There hasn’t been a commit to master since to trigger a new automatic build.

I’m heading out of town for the week, so I won’t be able to look at the Windows runtime until the weekend. 

Since there were completed builds in May and June I guess you mean that none of the bundles actually runs because libboost_date_time.dll isn’t in the bundle. I guess that’s not surprising except that I thought I’d set up the build of boost so that date_time would be header-only. That part should be easy to fix.

What’s the runtime error?
