Compiler Error CS0432 

Error Message

Alias 'identifier' not found

This error occurs when you use "::" to the right of an identifier that is not an alias. To resolve the error, use "." instead.

The following example generates CS0432:

// CS0432.cs
namespace A {
    public class B {
        public static void Meth() { }

public class Test
    public static void Main()
        A::B.Meth();   // CS0432
       // To resolve, use the following line instead:
       // A.B.Meth();
