Non-shared members in a Structure cannot be declared 'New'
A nonshared variable in a structure is declared with a New clause.
You can initialize a shared reference variable in a structure, and you can have a nonshared reference variable without initialization, as the following code lines show.
Shared structVar1 As New System.ApplicationException
Dim structVar2 As System.ApplicationException
However, you cannot initialize a nonshared reference variable in a structure. The following code line is invalid.
Dim structVar3 As New System.ApplicationException ' INVALID IN A STRUCTURE
Error ID: BC30795
To correct this error
Remove either the Shared modifier or the New keyword from the reference variable declaration.
