Compiler Error C3176

'type' : cannot declare local value type

A class can only be declared as a value type at global scope.

The following sample generates C3176:

// C3176.cpp
// compile with: /clr
#using <mscorlib.dll>
// Declare the class here to resolve the error.
int main()
   __value class V    // C3176
