You can find the paths to the DLL and the module from the bjam
command line output. In the tutorial:

  And so on... Finally:

     Creating library path-to-boost_python.dll
        Creating library path-to-'''hello_ext'''.exp
     **passed** ... hello.test
     ...updated 35 targets...

You can simply grab those and place them in your Python command line
path. Or.. you can also do:

      bjam -n (or -d+2)

and copy the python invocation, with the part that sets env vars before
it. and directly run the same command.
