Compiler Error C2462

'identifier' : cannot define a type in a 'new-expression'

You cannot define a type in the operand field of the new operator. Put the type definition in a separate statement.

The following sample generates C2462:

// C2462.cpp
int main() {
   new struct S { int i; };   // C2462
