Thanks a lot, this solved my problem.

Here are the necessary steps in case anyone ever needs something similar:

Create a file called user-config.jam in directory %USERPROFILE% and an
empty bjam.bat file in directory C:\.

user-config.jam has to contain this line:

using msvc : 8.0 : : <setup>"C:\\bjam.bat" ;
