Compiler Error C2626

 

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

'identifier': a private or protected data member is not allowed in an anonymous struct or union

A member of an anonymous struct or union must have public access.

The following sample generates C2626:

// C2626.cpp  
int main() {  
   union {  
   protected:  
      int j;     // C2626, j is protected  
   private:  
      int k;     // C2626, k is private  
   };  
}  

To fix this issue, remove any private or protected tags:

// C2626b.cpp  
int main() {  
   union {  
   public:  
      int i;   // OK, i is public  
   };  
}
