    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <stack.h> <== error

    Where is this file, is it in your include directory, or did you make it?

    Uusally means stack.h is not listed in the include folder for the compiler. All your header filess are rather dated too. You should drop the .h on them all apart from stack as I am not sure if it requires it.
    The only thing I can sugguest is going onto Microsofts website and enquiring about stack.h. It may give you the answer you need.

    According to this C++ reference there is a standard <stack> library.

    When you are using C++ standard headers, don't put the ".h" at the end of them. If the library is inherited from C, drop ".h" and prefix "c" (e.g <cmath>, <cstdlib>, <cstdio>, <ctime> etc).

    If by #include <string.h> you mean the C++ string class, you are including a wrong library altogether (the C string library), and you have probably got away with this because <iostream> may include <string> for you.

    (With Dev-Cpp #include <stack.h> gives an "deprecated header" warning. Only #include <stack> compiles well. May-be VC++ doesn't have the deprecated versions of some headers at all?)

    It should be <iostream>, <fstream>, <string>, and <stack> or <iostream>, <fstream>, <cstring>, and <stack>, depending on whether you are using the C++ string class or C style string functions.

    <stack.h> is not deprecated and is not standard at all. Chances are that <stack> is different from the <stack.h> in Borland, so the code might have to change. Just copying over Borland's stack.h is probably a bad idea, switching to the standard <stack> header is a better idea, even if you have to adjust the current code.
