You are attempting to mix two different languages -- c++ and CLR/C++. Since you are using CLR/C++ (Windows Forms) then you must use System.io.File class instead of <iostream> and <fstream>. Forget about using standard c++ header files, they don't work with CLR/C++. Other container classses are in the compiler's include/clrext folder.
