Subject: [Boost-users] boost build and link problems

Hello all:
I'm trying to use boost::asio in an app. I used the bootstrap.bat and
then bjam to build and configure boost. I use the visual studio 2008
command prompt because when I run bootstrap.bat from the normal command
prompt, I get:

cl.exe - System Error
The program can't start because mspdb100.dll is missing from your
computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
the build is building vc100 libs, but when I try to build my app it's trying to link to vc90 libs. I am using 2008, so I am confused as to why this is working out to build vc100 libs. When I build:
1>LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'libboost_system-vc90-mt-gd-1_46_1.lib'
so it looks like it's trying to link to vc90 libs when vc100 are all that's being built. Is there a way to get rid of this and build for vs 2008?

Take care,
