The #pragma hdrstop gives an invalid filename. The pragma can be followed by an optional filename in parentheses and quotation marks:

The following sample generates C2854:

// C2854.cpp  
// compile with: /c  
#pragma hdrstop( "\\source\\pchfiles\\myheader.pch" ]   // C2854  
// try the following line instead  
// #pragma hdrstop( "\\source\\pchfiles\\myheader.pch" )
