I am new to the list and after checking the
archives I don't quite find any message that answers my question.
I recently downloaded and installed the Boost 1.33.0, until now I have
been using 1.32.0. From there I am using the BoostBuild v2 for my
Now when after installing the new boost build, I modified the
user-config.jam as for visual studio 6.0 as follows:
using msvc ;
Pretty much the same thing I had under Boost 1.32.0
Without having any changes to my environment, now when I try to build
the same project I get this error:
can't find cl.exe
which makes no sense because cl.exe is actually in the path. In fact I
can execute cl.exe in the shell right after trying to bjam --v2 my
project. So it seems to me something has changed drastically in the
msvc config files or how boostbuild local configuration works.
If I switch back to boost 1.32.0, everything works again.
Any ideas what I am missing in the new configuration?
I also tried:
using msvc : 6.0 : "c:\\ etc \\cl.exe"
that did allow boost.build to start compiling but it gave me this
annoying warning messasge of
unknown option /wd4675
