Compiler Error C3896

'member' : improper initializer: this literal data member can only be initialized with 'nullptr'

A literal (Visual C++) data member was initialized incorrectly. See nullptr for more information.

The following sample generates C3896:

// C3896.cpp
// compile with: /clr /c
ref class R{};

value class V {
   literal R ^ r = "test";   // C3896
   literal R ^ r2 = nullptr;   // OK
