Compiler Error C3862


The latest version of this topic can be found at Compiler Error C3862.

function': cannot compile an unmanaged function with /clr:pure or /clr:safe

A compilation with /clr:pure or /clr:safe will produce an MSIL only image, an image with no native (unmanaged) code. Therefore, you cannot use the unmanaged pragma in a /clr:pure or /clr:safe compilation.

For more information, see /clr (Common Language Runtime Compilation) and managed, unmanaged.

The following sample generates C3862:

// C3862.cpp  
// compile with: /clr:pure /c  
#pragma unmanaged  
void f() {}   // C3862
