Compiler Error C2062

type 'type' unexpected

The compiler did not expect a type name.

The following sample generates C2062:

// C2062.cpp
// compile with: /c
struct A {  : int l; };   // C2062
struct B { private: int l; };   // OK

C2062 can also occur due to the way the compiler handles undefined types in a constructor's parameter list. If the compiler encounters an undefined (misspelled?) type, it assumes the constructor is an expression, and issues C2062. To resolve, only use defined types in a constructor parameter list.
