Compiler Error CS0157 

Error Message

Control cannot leave the body of a finally clause

All of the statements in a finally clause must execute. For more information, see Exception Handling Statements and Exceptions and Exception Handling (C# Programming Guide).

The following sample generates CS0157:

// CS0157.cs
using System;
namespace MyNamespace
{
   public class MyClass2 : Exception
   {
   }

   public class MyClass
   {
      public static void Main()
      {
         try
         {
         }

         finally
         {
            return;   // CS0157, cannot leave finally clause
         }
      }
   }
}
