I have class StringWrapper
void StringWrapper::      operator=      (System::String^ Value)
{
    MyString = Value;      
}

Following code:
------------------

StringWrapper a;
a="a";                      // Works well

StringWrapper^ b;
b = "b";                   // does not compile


What I nned to do to get rid of error:
error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'const char [2]' to 'StringWrapper ^'

   StringWrapper^ b = gcnew StringWrapper();
    *b = "b";

Your code is not compiled because you try to assign string to reference and not to class instance.
