Compiler Error C3816

'declaration' was previously declared or defined with a different managed or WinRT modifier

A forward declaration and an actual declaration require that there be no conflicts or inconsistencies in the declaration of attributes.

The following sample generates C3816 and shows how to fix it:

// C3816a.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
class C1;
// try the following line instead
// ref class C1;

ref class C1{  // C3816, forward declaration does not use ref
