Visual C++ 2010, BJAM, Boost library compile

Posted on 2011-04-30
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I inherited a project and to compile it I needed some additional libraries.
I downloaded the boost libraries from and now need to compile the boost library to create the file

libboost_system-vc100-mt-s-1_46_1.lib  (which my project says is missing when I try to build it)

the closest I get is using the BJAM compiler using the line

BJAM --with-system

this produces the libraries

I have tried a variety of angles on the bjam but have not found the magic answer yet
