No basic_istream? please help!

I don’t have basic_istream, it says compilation error.
I am coding with visual studio on a windows.
how do I get basic_istream?

basic_istream is in the std namespace. You would have to reference it via std::basic_istream or alternately add using std namespace in your file.

I did.
