Subject: [Boost-build] Build libs: which ver. of MSVC?

I have several MS Visual Studios installed on my computer (some recent and some "Express Editions" - experimental).

I don't use the highest version - 10.0 ("Express Edition", although I'm still having installed it), but I'm currently using the previous version - 9.0 (Standard Edition).

When I run b2.exe to build boost libraries, it seems that it detects the highest MSVC version (= 10.0) and such libraries are targeted.

How does b2 detect the MSVC version?

Where to specify the target MSVC version to be 9.0?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
