I have a directory in my project call Boost. I added the directory to the
library files list.
In this directory I have the libboost*.lib files and the boost*.dll files.
I am able to get it working with no problem if I only have the libboost*.lib
files in there. If I rename them, and add the dll into the directory, it
will not build. That is where it will give me the error saying that it is
looking for libboost*.lib

You /are/ linking to the dll then.

Have you added the location of the libraries to the library paths?
(Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->VC++ Directories, I think)
