I'm working on the assumption that you want to use cl.exe as your compiler.
If you open a VS20XX Command Prompt (elevated), you can add the paths to
your libs in that environment like this:


Now cl.exe will be able to find your includes/libs, independently from bjam.

Issue a "set" command and you'll be able to see all the settings, it's
pretty self explanatory. For all info on cmd-shell, take a look at
It's also good for bash/powershell/OSX...

Now issue the proper bjam command (for building the asio examples) and
things should work.
