boost-build I:\\modular-boost\\tools\\build ;
Unable to load Boost.Build: could not find build system.
J:\Cpp\boost-build.jam attempted to load the build system by invoking
'boost-build I:\modular-boost\tools\build ;'
but we were unable to find "bootstrap.jam" in the specified directory
or in BOOST_BUILD_PATH (searching I:\modular-boost\tools\build).
Please consult the documentation at 'http://www.boost.org'.
but bootstrap.jam is actually at I:\modular-boost\tools\build\src
so I tried
boost-build I:\\modular-boost\\tools\\build\\src ;
and then added a jamroot.jam and that did the trick.
