Hi Victor,
can you switch C++ Boost regression tests that you're running to Boost.Build

The general instructions can be found at:

In your specific case, the content of user-config.jam should be:

    using msvc : 7.1 : the-path-to-compiler/cl.exe ;
    using msvc : 8.0 : the-path-to-compiler/cl.exe ;

    using python : <whatever.version> : <whatever.path> ;

Speaking about python, example line is:

    using python : 2.3 : C:/python ;

The command line to run the regression tests should be something like: --v2 --toolsets=msvc-7.1,msvc-8.0


   - The --v2 option makes use Boost.Build V2
   - The "-V2" suffix in runner id makes it clear that V2 is used in the
      test matrix

The configurations above can be placed either in file user-config.jam in a
directory given by the value of HOME environment variable, or can be placed
in file test-config.jam placed in any directory that's in BOOST_BUILD_PATH,
for example, in the directory from where you invoke

If you have any issues or concerns or questions, please ask me right away,
either here, or via personal email, or via Jabber
(vladimir_prus_at_[hidden]), or via ICQ (100422315), or via Skype

Thanks in advance,
