Failed to bootstrap the build engine Please consult bootstrap.log for furter diagnostics. ________________________________ From: Steven Watanabe <watanabesj_at_[hidden]> To: boost-build_at_[hidden] Sent: Saturday, March 17, 2012 4:36 PM Subject: Re: [Boost-build] 2 Problems with bootstrap.bat AMDG On 03/17/2012 01:26 PM, Jim Sager wrote: > I do not have Visual Studio.  I only have mingw.  Can you make boost-build with mingw? > Ah.  That would explain why cl doesn't work.
