I think you will need to compile the libraries yourself - you will only have the
1.41 in the prebuilt libraries.

If you have both 14.1 and 14.2 compilers installed, you will need to adjust your
user-config.jam (or system) so that b2 only uses 14.2 (simpler)

b2 toolset=msvc-14.2,

 or provide both so that you can built either or both.

b2 toolset=msvc-14.2,msvc-14.1

The *default* msvc version is the *first* in the .jam file.

Or wait until prebuilt 14.2 libraries are available.
