There is not such header shipped with Visual C++.
The uint*_t/int*_t definitions are part of C99 extension to C standard.
Visual C++ does not support C99.

namespace but not in the global namespace.
Then clients of a library can decide what and how they want to use
without being forced to stick to types polluting global namespace.
