Help, I'm having trouble with under the freely downloadable
microsoft C/C++ compiler.

I've moved cl.exe and so on into a directory where boost can find them,
and v1 has no problems producing .obj files. The trouble now
is that it tries to link with msvcrt.lib.

As I understand things so far, this compiler decided to call the same C
and C++ runtime libraries libc.lib, libcmt.lib and so on. cl.exe knows
how to turn a C++ file into an executable, but link.exe by default tries
to link with that old name msvcrt.lib

Has anybody had luck getting working with this compiler? The
download is at
