Visual Studio C++ >> Newbie to BOOST

Hi, all. The other day I asked for help about building BOOST for VC++6...(see
BOOST, bellow, in the threads)

Well, I placed the files at:

C:/boost/boost_1_33_1

and ran a batch file with the following code:

bjam "-sTOOLS=msvc" install

well, the screen looked marvelous with all kind of flashes, actually it
created
a file called bin. When I opened I found a whole bunch of empty folders...:)

My question is:
Is that all? Where can I find the files it's supposed to build?
Did I do everything right?


Thank you.

You should post such questions to the boost users mailing list. See
http:://lists.boost.org for subscription info.

Did your batch file run vcvars32.bat before bjam? You need to use
vcvars32.bat (or the VC command line from the Visual Studio tools
shortcut folder) before using VC from the command line (via a batch file
or otherwise).
