Compiler error with Directory::GetCurrentDirectory()

I am trying to use a std windows call,  String path= Directory::GetCurrentDirectory();   which is part of System.IO, but cannot assemble it because it cannot find #include <System>

What should be my #include statement to be able to use the getcurrentdirectory() function? The exact error is:

fatal error: Cannot open include file no such file or directory

I gave up on #using System.dll which requires /Clr compile option, can't find it explained anywhere to compile it correctly with VS2008. This works okay instead:

char psCurDir[256];
LPSTR CurrentPath;
GetCurrentDirectory[256], psCurDir);
CurrentPath = psCurDir;
