Is there really no way to make .lib or .dll projects in VC express 2008? I'm trying to build the latest SVN version of some boost libraries and I don't want to use bjam. The problem is, in the New project window, there's no option to create a C++ static or dynamic library (except for .NET managed C++). Is there a way to create such a project by choosing empty project and some clever trickery with the project properties dialog?

Just do: File->New->Project->Win32 Project->Next and chose 'DLL' or 'Static Library' under 'Application type'. A 'Win32 Project' can be a windows/console executable, dll or lib. You can also chose for 'Empty project' under 'Additional options' if you want a clean project (without precompiled headers).
