Might you try a later version of Visual Studio?  That may have changed

Is this the address of the "return" statement, or is the address
within the runtime that called main?  If the latter, can you diagnose
the runtime with a debugger?  Can you find the assembly instructions
that cause the access violation, and discern what they might be

My guess is stack or heap corruption.

You might also experiment by adding early return to main at different
points until you find what creates the situation.
