Those .dsp files are no longer supported and should probably be removed. The
officially supported method for building/testing Boost.Python is to use
Boost.Build with the Jamfile in <boost-root>/libs/python/build. The html
documentation on building the library is out-of-date; for that I apologize.
However, the comments in the Jamfile describing how to build there are still
current, except that libboost_python is now a dynamic library.

Subject: [boost] Boost.Python on Windows 2000

> I am trying to build the Boost Python package 1_27_0 on Windows

> I tried using the Visual C++ project file provided with the Boost
> distribution (build.dsw): it will not load properly into Visual C++.
> I then created my own project file, as a standard dll project,
> dragging the .cpp files from the boost_1_27_0/libs/python/src
> directory, and pointing my include and library directories to the
> appropriate boost and python locations. However, now I encounter

> does not exist under the distribution I downloaded.
> A similar attempt to build boost.python with the same boost
> distribution on Solaris 2.8 went relatively smoothly (requiring minor
> tweaks to the makefile).
> Any information or pointers to potentially overlooked documentation
