Reference types(ref class/struct) only supports public inheritance.

ref class Base{};
ref class Derived1 : public Base{}; //works
ref class Derived2 : private Base{} //error C3141
ref class Derived3 : protected Base{} //error C3141

Why C++/CLI doesn't support private and protected inheritance?

Re: CLI inheritance
It's not C++/CLI that does not support private/public inheritance, it's .NET that does not support them. C++/CLI is bound by the rules of the framework it targets.
