Compiler Error C2705

'label' : illegal jump into 'exception handler block' scope

Execution jumps to a label within a try/catch, __try/__except, __try/__finally block. For more information, see Exception Handling.

The following sample generates C2705:

// C2705.cpp
int main() {
goto trouble;
   __try {
      trouble: ;   // C2705
   __finally {}

   // try the following line instead
   // trouble: ;
