Hi Rob, Thanks for the answer!

It did solve the error.. but produced a new one:

C:\boost\boost_1_33_1\libs\python\example\tutorial>bjam -sTOOLS=vc-8_0
Unable to load Boost.Build: could not find build system.
---------------------------------------------------------
C:\boost\boost_1_33_1\libs\python\example\boost-build.jam attempted to
load the
build system by invoking

   'boost-build C:/boost/boost_1_33_1/tools/build/v1 ;'

but we were unable to find "bootstrap.jam" in the specified directory
or in BOOST_BUILD_PATH (searching C:\boost\boost_1_33_1, C:/boost/
boost_1_33_1/t
ools/build/v1).

What is bootstrap.jam? .. Haven't seen that one in the short
tutorial...

Thanks alot!,
Soren
