Compiler Error CS0713 

Error Message

Static class 'static type' cannot derive from type 'type'. Static classes must derive from object.

If this were allowed, the static class would inherit methods and non-static members from the base class, so it would not be static. Therefore, it is not allowed.

The following sample generates CS0713:

// CS0713.cs
public class Base
{
}

public static class Derived : Base  // CS0713
{
}

public class CMain
{
   public static void Main()
   {
   }
}
