Boost Users,

        I am still getting the rule python-extension unknown error.
Bjam is using the user-config.jam file in "C:\Program
Files\boost\boost_1_36_0\tools\build\v2". I have the file configured as

using msvc : 7.1 ;
using python : 2.6 : "C:/Program Files/Python26";

        I have tried configuring the file like this with and without the
quotation marks, forward slashes, backslashes, a trailing slash in the
"using python" line. If I put a directory that doesn't even exist in
the "using python" line, nothing changes, which I would hope to see a
crash on that.

Please help.

Thank you,
Robert MacHardy

Try running bjam with --debug-configuration. That should tell you which
user-config.jam is used.
