Microsoft C++ Question

from Jon G. Rothlander (
Why can I not use Microsoft C++ to compile the examples in "Learning to Program C++"? I get an error on the first example that use the cin and cout with the '<<'.

I am a Visual Basic programmer that has not programmed in C for a number of years and I am trying to learn to use Microsoft C++ because I already own Visual Studio. The last time I did any C was in 1990 so I'm not fimilar with any of this.
