System requirements for PVS-Studio analyzer

The PVS-Studio analyzer is intended to work on the Windows or Linux platform.

When used on Windows it integrates into Microsoft Visual Studio 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010 development environments. System requirements for the analyzer coincide with requirements for Microsoft Visual Studio:

  • Development environment: Microsoft Visual Studio 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010. It is advisable to install the "X64 Compilers and Tools" Visual Studio component for the analysis of 64-bit applications. It is included into all the mentioned versions of Visual Studio and can be installed through Visual Studio Setup.
  • Operating system: Windows Vista/2008/7/8/2012/10 x64.

To work on Linux you should have the GCC or Clang compiler installed, the PVS-Studio.lic license file and the config file PVS-Studio.cfg.

PVS-Studio works on systems with main memory of 1 GB at least (the recommended size is 2 GBs or more) for each processor core; the analyzer supports multi-core operation (the more cores you have, the faster code analysis is).
