Compiler Error CS0718

'type': static types cannot be used as type arguments

Because a static type cannot be instantiated, it cannot be used as a generic argument. To resolve this error, remove the static type from the generic argument.

The following sample generates CS0718:

// CS0718.cs
public static class SC
{
    public static void F()
    {
    }
}

public class G<T>
{
}

public class CMain
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        G<SC> gsc = new G<SC>();  // CS0718
    }
}
