I’m getting an access violation error just after I call FMOD::System::release(). Is there a known bug with the current release of the FMOD Ex API?
This is the essence of my initialization code for setting up my FMOD::System object –
m_FmodSystem->init(100, FMOD_INIT_NORMAL, 0);
// Load and play some sounds
I can’t understand what’s causing an access violation. Leaving out the release() call altogether means everything quits nice and clean!
Any help would be great.

This should not be causing an access violation please send us a minimal reproduction of the error to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can take a look.
You don’t have to close before release, release will call close internally if it hasn’t already been called.
Every OS should reclaim all the memory allocated by a process when it closes, but it’s still good practice to clean up after yourself.

Do you have any other things that should be released <prior to> as well? groups, occlusion geometry, etc.
It’s not a clean exits not to call system release but on Windows it’s not a big deal. Better have a clean exit. But it’s best for you to have a seamingly clean exit (to the eyes of your users), not calling release.
There has to be something going on in your code somewhere. I have no problems myself.
