Why when I use #include <iostream.h> everything is fine... it prints "Hello World"
But if I use #include <iostream> it prints numbers probably an Address ?

#include <afxwin.h>
#include <iostream> // problem


int main()
{
      CString s1("Hello World");

      std::cout << s1;

      return 0;
}

Use

    std::cout << (LPCTSTR) s1;

STL knows nothing about CString, so you will have to force a conversion, otherwise the behaviour will be undefined (as you already noticed).

<iostream.h> is older and has Microsoft-specific stuff in it, so it knows what to do with a CString.

<iostream> is pure STL, and doesn't know anything about MFC classes like CString. And CString doesn't have an operator<< for cout. But you should be able to cast it to do what you want:

CString s1("Hello World");
std::cout << (LPCTSTR) s1;
