This should be
using namespace std;

What do you get when you use this line?

i'm confused. if you use

using namespace std;

you are still getting
> c:\Documents and Settings\komlaaa.ROW-096.000\Desktop\DCPlusPlus-0.401-src\client\stdinc.h(20): error C2871: '_STL' : a namespace with this name does not exist
??

do you use both 'using xxxxxx' or have you replaced _STL with std?

what about the third error? is there a 'atlapp.h' on your system? the name doesn't sound familiar to me.

maybe the namespace _STL is defined in atlapp.h

just reading your initial post again...
from the path included in the error message i presume that you try to compile the DC++ project (from sourceforge?)?

to compile this a number of things have to setup correctly (including STLport which seems to introduce the namespace _STL).

are you sure you followed
http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=22247&group_id=40287

if there is something missing you may want to check the main project page
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dcplusplus/

if this is not about DC++, i better go and get myself a beer :-)

cheers

Try adding an explicit global scope specifier:

 using namespace ::_STL;

if that doesn't work, you probably need to find that atlapp.h and include it *before* the using directive.
