Compiler Error CS0714

Visual Studio 2008

'static type' : static classes cannot implement interfaces

Interfaces may define non-static methods on objects and hence may not be implemented by static classes. To resolve this error, make sure your class does not attempt to implement any interfaces.

The following sample generates CS0714:

// CS0714.cs
interface I
{
}

public static class C : I  // CS0714
{
    public static void Main()
    {
    }
}
