I'm using both VC6 and VC7 for testing Boost.Threads now. I've been

not found a need for a different msvc-tools.jam, but I have set up my
environment such that I call the appropriate MS supplied batch file
for setting my environment (vcvars32.bat for VC6 and vsvars32.bat for
VC7). As long as your in a shell that's invoked the appropriate
batch file the Jamfiles work just fine. The only word of warning is
that you have to be sure to delete ALL pdb files when switching
between compilers... so I don't know if you'll be able to get it so
that you can run both compilers in the same regression test
If any of what I just said is of help I can supply the scripts I use
to configure my environment for either compiler.
