Hi,

Is it the calling function's responsibility to free the 32 bytes of 'shadow' space after the called function returns? I assumed yes because I disassembled some code from mingw and all the functions seemed to end with RET not RET 32. However, I have some programs ported from Linux that crash when I do ADD RSP, 32 after a function returns. Just wanted to rule out the possibility I've misunderstood something?

Thanks

the shadow space in not necessarly only 32 bytes. If more than 4 integer arguments are passed to the function, then the shadow space is bigger. This is probably the source of your crash.
