Boost-Build :

I've upgraded to visual studio 2005 express sp1 and cannot load/execute
any dlls or executables I create. I assume it is a microsoft problem I
just thought I'd post it here to see if anyone else has had similar

int main() { return 1; }

project : default-build release ;
exe test_exe : exe_src.cpp ;
install dist : test_exe ;

I get the following error at the dos-prompt:
The system cannot execute the specified program.

and depends tells me:
Error: At least one required implicit or forwarded dependency was not found.
Error: The Side-by-Side configuration information in
"c:\dev\myprojects\home\test\dist\TEST_EXE.EXE" contains errors. This
application has failed to start because the application configuration is
incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem (14001).

The problem seems to be locating msvcr80.dll.

I assume this is something messed up in the sp1 installation but I find
all the manifest documentation quite hard to work through and have no
idea what to do next to narrow this problem down.

Merry xmas!
