getting c++ libraries using the intel compiler

I have downloaded the trial version of intel C++ compiler (11.1.065)
I have extraced the boost files to the folder "C:\\boost_1_37_0\\boost_1_37_0"
I have invoked bjam using the foll command
bjam --Build-dir=C:\\boost_1_37_0\\boost_1_37_0\\intel" --toolset=intel --build-type=complete stage
I see the foll error

...found 4071 targets...

I am able to build in VisualStudio.
How do I generate the boos libraries for the Intel Compiler ?

I'll take care about your request, but give me some time to investigate.

I ran a boost build test (however with newest boost _1_43_0), but didn't find such failures. The crucial part on your side, I believe, is that --toolset=intel fails.

There is a knowledge base article at which may help. This articel describes boost with using Intel Parallel Studio, but the procedure is the same for the classic Intel C++ Compiler 11.1.

I ran into another issue that was very related to this forum thread at
