It looks as if you have a newer MSVC installed on your computer and boost has been built
using that rather than the VS2012 version you were expecting.

The simplest way to control this is probably to create a user-config.jam file.

So for example on my windows machine I have:
c:\documents and settings\alexp\user-config.jam

which contains


# MSVC configuration
using msvc : 11.0 ;

# Python configuration
using python : 2.7 : c:/Python27 ;


This then selects msvc version 11.0 (VS 2012) to build boost.

Though you can do this via the command-line of b2 if required but I always forget the proper incantation....
