However, I am getting the following errors:

My user-config.jam looks like this:

import toolset : using ;

using boostbook
  : c:/cygwin/usr/share/docbook-xsl
  : c:/cygwin/usr/share/xml/docbook/4.2

using python : 2.4 : c:/python24 ;

using msvc : 7.1 ; # VS.NET 2003
using msvc : 8.0 ; # VS.NET 2005

The two problems are:
* process_jam_log.exe is trying to be built with msvc, but I only have
versioned variants of msvc;
* the python tool is attempting to be initialized with python<version>.exe,
whereas it is python.exe. Is this a regression as I had python being
detected properly on previous runs (but I wasn't using that
time, although this should only be a BBv2 problem introduced over the last
day or so).

NOTE: I am using:

c:/python24/python ./ get-source
c:/python24/python ./ setup --v2
c:/python24/python ./ test --v2 --toolsets=msvc-7.1
c:/python24/python ./ collect-logs --v2

to run the regressions. Do I need:

c:/python24/python ./ setup --v2 --toolsets=msvc-7.1
