MMX/SSE2 instrinsic crashes on function exit
I am trying to use the SSE2 intrinsics to access the XMM registers but I'm having a problem. The intrinsic commands are calculating and returning the correct values on the first call to the function, but it crashes on the second call with an access violation.
Here is the code in question:
On the second call to this code, the access violation occurs on the first mm_load with this:
__declspec(align(16)) unsigned __int16 laData; // use to hold result
// Get row 0
lsXMM0 = _mm_load_si128((__m128i*)&gaRefFrame[anSampleYPos][anSampleXPos]);
lsXMM1 = _mm_load_si128((__m128i*)&gaCurFrame[anBlockYPos][anBlockXPos]);
// SAD Row 0
lsTotal = _mm_sad_epu8(lsXMM0, lsXMM1);
// Get SAD results
Is there something I must do to clear out the lsXMM0 structure to use it again? I would think it goes out of scope on exiting the function and gets redeclared on the next call.
