I am trying to compile the latest Boost libraries version 1.75 with the latest intel compiler. I have it installed on my Windows 10 computer along with Visual Studio 2019 enterprise edition.

I try to run (after I created Boost.Build and added to the path)

b2 --boost-dir=<target directory> --build-type=complete link=shared runtime-link=shared toolset=intel-2021.1-vc14.1

it fails also if I try for toolset intel , intel-2021.1, intel-2021.1-vc14.2 etc....

gives me:
*** argument error
* rule path.make ( native )
* called with: ( )
* missing argument native
..........\path.jam:518:see definition of rule 'path.make' being called

There is no path problem, for example when I run toolset=msvc, the compilation succeeds...

Any Idea?
