Compiler Error C2650

'operator' : cannot be a virtual function

A new or delete operator is declared virtual. These operators are static member functions and cannot be virtual.

The following sample generates C2650:

// C2650.cpp
// compile with: /c
class A {
   virtual void* operator new( unsigned int );   // C2650
   // try the following line instead
   // void* operator new( unsigned int );
