Exact path to boost libs for all architectures and MSVC versions

I'm trying to figure out what the paths are to the boost DLLs for every possible architecture. From some failed builds of mine, I noticed that


is one of them. This was for a 32-bit debug build using Visual Studio 2015.
Is is true that the location of the DLLs always has this form? I'm assuming it changes when building for x64? Are there environment variables that I can use to get at the exact path no matter what platform or MSVC version I am using?

I need to set my %PATH% to include this directory.

    There is 64-bit libs in C:\Libraries\boost_1_63_0\lib64-msvc-14.0 folder. There is no environment variables for paths to those libs though you can always hit dir command during the build or login via RDP to explore the environment.

    Thanks for the reply. The RDP functionality is very helpful. I'll add these paths to my env manually.
