Building boost

I'm having difficulty trying to figure out how to build Boost libraries for MSVC 7.1

I've downloaded a built version of bjam and placed it in my windows directory. I browse to the libs/signals/build and type bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7"

And this proceeds to produce a stream of errors. I suspect the reason is that it's looking in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\" which is not where my install is. How do I get bjam to look for MSVC in the right place?

Thanks,
-Sandra

Do you still have this problem? See this page: http://www.boost.org/tools/build/vc7-tools.html - the standard MSVC environment variables may also work if you only have one version of MSVC on your system: http://www.boost.org/tools/build/msvc-tools.html
