I would like to build boost library in 2 configurations (as mentioned
below) for my project.

1. Visual Studio 2005 SP1

2. Visual Studio 2008

Also I want to use is on 32bit windows XP and also on 64 bit. So I guess
I need it with above 2 configurations (VS2005 SP1 & 2008) both on 32 bit
and 64 bit machine. Please confirm.


I am using below version -

Version 1.35.0

Boost Jam 3.1.16


I am following below steps to build on VS 2005 -

* Unzip "" and run "build.bat" - As a result
"bjam.exe" is created in folder "boost-jam-3.1.16\bin.ntx86"

* Unzip "" in say "C:\Boost" folder

* Copy "bjam.exe" to "C:\Boost\boost_1_35_0" path

* Go to command prompt and make current directory as

* Run the command below (For Microsoft Visual C++ command-line
tools from Visual Studio .NET 2005) to build boost

bjam "-sTOOLS=vc-8_0" install
