Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2014-10-13 20:11:47 UTC
MCS emits the following error about a DllImport static extern method in a generic class. The method does not make use of the generic type, and CSC does not complain about it.

error CS7042: The DllImport attribute cannot be applied to a method that is generic or contained in a generic type

Newer csc reports same error.
