OK, and thanks for providing the info :-)

OK, that's just strange. When I do the same sequence it works...

grafik_at_KLUDGE /c/DevRoots/Boost/boost/tools/build/v2/example/hello
$ bjam --v2
...found 9 targets...
...updating 5 targets...
MkDir1 bin
MkDir1 bin\msvc-8.0
MkDir1 bin\msvc-8.0\debug
msvc.compile.c++ bin\msvc-8.0\debug\hello.obj
hello.cpp bin\msvc-8.0\debug\hello.exe
...updated 5 targets...

And I don't really know what could be wrong especially given that it's
creating the response file. Only thin I can think of is that there's
some difference between a bjam compiled with VC8 and one compiled with
VC71. Could you try using the one from:

It's has a bjam build from yesterday with VC71.
