For Boost to build using any Visual Studio version, you need to have
the command-line tools set up. Usually this means just having the
right directories in your PATH. See this knowledge base article:
Another way to get the right environment is to launch the "Visual
Studio Command Prompt" which is just an instance of Command Prompt
that has the variables set. To find it, go to the Start menu and
search for "Command" you will find something like "MSBuild Command
Prompt for VS2015"
Hope this helps!
