You did not have to make that change. That's just a default value; describes how to edit
your environment or command-line to override it. I don't know why or
how your installation ended up in:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft VisualStudio.NET"

but the installer I used puts it in

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft VisualStudio .NET"

by default. Perhaps you intentionally edited out the space at
installation time to avoid certain problems?

Yep, that's the way to go.

I don't believe that anyone around here knows what a "boost-dev
directory tree" is. I've never heard of it.
