"push ecx+1" is trashing ebx, why?? Is there a way to make it trash something else instead?




Edit: actually I'm not sure WHAT it's trashing.

It crashes my program even if I preserve every single register;

Code:
pushad
push    ecx+1
add    esp,4
popad    


Why??


P.S. if I remove the +1 it is fine.

Code:
00401001   60               PUSHAD
00401002   51               PUSH ECX
00401003   6A 01            PUSH 1
00401005   83C4 04          ADD ESP,4
00401008   61               POPAD

    


"push ECX+1" is not the equivalent of push ecx/lea ecx,[ecx+1]/xchg ecx, [esp] but push ecx/push +1 instead.

push and pop supports an arbitrary number of operands without comma separation
