Sure enough, that solved the problem. You have to run vsvars32.bat within
the same instance of the command prompt that you invoke bjam, or else any
changes made to PATH are not persisted. You should mention this in your
blog! You should also double check the syntax for that shortcut, it doesn't
seem to work either. I went to start >> programs >> accessories >> command

modify the "target" of this shortcut with how your blog instructed and it
would not work. In any case, thanks for the help.
