I built the thread library after downloading "".

After building the thread library from bjam, when I build the program in
VS2008, I get following linker error:-

Error 1 fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file

What I see in the generated library folder is that
boost_thread-vc90-mt-gd-1_36.lib is generated, but the linker is looking
for 'libboost_thread-vc90-mt-gd-1_36.lib'.

I have already done the required changes in the project properties
mentioned at .

Similar thing happening with Regex library also. The generated lib is
boost_regex-vc90-gd-1_36.lib, but the linker is looking for

 Is there any other settings change required or something else?
