'_stricmp()' has been in all all VC-products since the 90-ies.
From my attic, I even found it in a 16-bit Quick-C (cl v7) version (1992!).
  int __cdecl _stricmp(const char *, const char *);
  #ifndef __STDC__
  /* Non-ANSI names for compatibility */
  int __cdecl stricmp(const char *, const char *);
