Compiler Error CS0711 

Error Message

Static classes cannot contain destructors

A static class cannot be instantiated, hence it has no need for constructors or destructors. To avoid this error, remove any destructors from static classes, or, if you really want to construct and destroy instances, make the class non-static.

The following sample generates CS0711:

// CS0711.cs
public static class C
{
   ~C()  // CS0711
   {
   }

   public static void Main()
   {
   }
}
