Need help with Visual C++ error message

P: n/a
I wrote a C++ progam nine years ago and I haven't been in C++ since
then. I re-installed Visual C++ 4.0 on a Win98 machine and tried to
compile the program value.cpp but I get the error message

Cannot open file : 'stream.h': Permission denied.

I am really out of practice with C++ and I want to get back into it
now. The program 'value.cpp' and its header file 'header.h' can be
found at:

Any help is appreciated.

TIA

When things like that happen, the language really has nothing to
do with it. If a file cannot be open due to permission conflict,
it's the installation issue or a log-in issue or something else
operating-system-related.

Please ask in microsoft.public.vc.ide_general. It's quite possible
that you're not going to get far, since VC++ v4 is at least eight
years old. Be prepared to read "you're on your own".

I recommend you to find a good open-source development environment,
like Dev-C++ along with MinGW. You will have a compiler that is
much closer to the language as specified in the Standard, and the
build environment that is much more up to date.

The program you are looking at was written by someone who preferred Pascal.
If you want to get back into C++ I suggest you at least find a program
written by someone who actually likes the language.

And you really need an up to date compiler. There are free ones if you don't
want to pay.
