I'm tryin to build Boost for Visual Studio 2005. I already have build
successfully the Boost librarys for Visual Studio 2003 in the past and I never had
any problems. But now with boost_1_33_1 for VC 8.0 I always get the
following error in the Windows Shell(see build log):
C:\boost\boost_1_33_1>bjam.exe "-sBUILD=debug <runtime-link>dynamic
ulti" "-sTOOLS=vc-8_0" -d+2 -d+4

skipping Boost.Python library build due to missing or incorrect configuration
couldn't find Python.h in "c:/Python24/include"
You can configure the location of your python installation by setting:
PYTHON_VERSION - The 2-part python Major.Minor version number (e.g.
"2.2", NOT "2.2.1") - currently "2.4"
PYTHON_ROOT - automatically configured from PYTHON_VERSION if not
otherwise set ; currently "c:/Python24"
The following are automatically configured from PYTHON_ROOT if not
otherwise set:
    PYTHON_LIB_PATH - path to Python library object; currently
Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(and if you don't know what ICU is then you probably don't need it).
MkDir1 bin
    mkdir "bin"

Executing command [cmd.exe] [/Q/C]

I had the same error under VS 8 after I deinstalled VS 2003. I could fix it
adding some path variables. But building of the Boost librarys is still not
possible. Can anybody help me to fix this error? :(
Best Regards
