I recently upgraded to Visual Studio 2010 and Office 2010.  My c++ program that compiled correctly with Excel 2003 no longer compiles correctly and throws many errors.  I have pasted in below some of these errors.  I have also pasted in the #imports and #includes.  I these were correct.

#include <stdafx.h>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>
#include <conio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <cmath>
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <vector>
#include <comdef.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <Lmcons.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <tchar.h>

#import \
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\Packages\vwd\mso.dll" \
rename("DocumentProperties", "DocumentPropertiesXL") \
rename("RGB", "RBGXL")

#import \
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\VBA\VBA7\VBE7.DLL" \
rename("EOF", "EOFXL") rename("RGB", "RGBXL") \
rename("GetObject", "GetObjectXL")

#import "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\EXCEL.exe" \
rename("DialogBox", "DialogBoxXL") rename("RGB", "RBGXL") \
rename("DocumentProperties", "DocumentPropertiesXL") \
rename("ReplaceText", "ReplaceTextXL") \
rename("CopyFile", "CopyFileXL") \
exclude("IFont", "IPicture") no_dual_interfaces

#import "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\DAO\dao360.dll" \
rename("EOF", "DAOEOF")




The erros are produced from the files:
