Subject: [Boost-users] How to build Boost with VC++ 2013 to target XP/2003 platform?
From: Caroline Beltran (caroline.d.beltran_at_[hidden])

Programs written in VC++ 2012 or 2013 will only run on Windows XP or
Windows 2003 when you choose the 'Windows XP (v120_xp)' toolset option in
the IDE.

Is there some way to set this option from Bjam?

P.S. A Stack Overflow user indicated that he got Boost to build under VC++
2012. I tried his solution under VC++ 2013 but it did not work for some
reason completely unknown to me.

Apparently, VC++ 2012/2013 use the Windows 8 SDK and the solution above
causes you to use the Windows 7 SDK which is compatible with XP and Windows

Please help me
