Compiler Warning (level 1) C4624

Error Message

'derived class' : destructor could not be generated because a base class destructor is inaccessible

A destructor was not accessible in a base class and was therefore not generated for a derived class. Any attempt to create an object of this type on the stack will cause a compiler error.

The following sample generates C4624:

// C4624.cpp
// compile with: /W1 /c
class B {
// Uncomment the following line to resolve.
// public:

class D : public B {};   // C4624 B's destructor not public
