You shoud however include <iostream> not <iostream.h>.

in the program as there is no iostream header file in the
library. (in the same folder as stdio.h)

Did you have a look in "Program Files\Microsoft Visual
Studio\VC98\Include" ? (Path may change a bit).

Just a nit, but you really shouldn't bother. Visual Studio is a
modern C++ compiler; he's writing new code. He should just
include <iostream>, and be done with it; if that doesn't work
(but it will), then you can forget about using the compiler for
any serious C++ work. (Normally, I would expect <iostream.h> to
work as well. But only to support legacy code, since it worked
in earlier versions of VC++. Whether it works or not is
completely irrelevant for new code.)
