I do not have Visual Studio.  I only have mingw.  Can you make boost-build with mingw? Related note: I'm trying to build asio(and it says it needs boost-build), and a few years ago, you could build asio with mingw. I'm pretty desperate wanting to build asio and I'd be willing to paypal someone who wants to step me through it 30$ or so.  Whoever wants to do this, email me your preferred Instant Messenger. ________________________________ From: Steven Watanabe <watanabesj_at_[hidden]> To: Boost.Build developer's and user's list <boost-build_at_[hidden]> Sent: Saturday, March 17, 2012 10:43 AM Subject: Re: [Boost-build] 2 Problems with bootstrap.bat On 03/16/2012 02:09 PM, Jim Sager wrote: > This page: > Says to get from the official website. > > However on the Download, there is no bootstrap.bat available.
