PVS-Studio analyzer works under 64-bit systems in Windows, Linux and macOS environments, and can analyze source code intended for 32-bit, 64-bit and embedded ARM platforms.
PVS-Studio requires at least 1 GB of RAM (2 GBs or more is recommended) for each processor core, when running analysis on a multi-core system (the more cores you have, the faster code analysis is).
The list of programming languages and compilers supported by the analyzer is available here.
Supported versions are Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019. PVS-Studio works only under 64-bit versions of Windows.
PVS-Studio requires .NET Framework version 4.7.2 or above (it will be installed during PVS-Studio installation, if it not present).
The PVS-Studio plugin can be integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010 development environments. For analysis of C and C++ code for embedded systems, the appropriate compiler toolchain should be present in the system.
PVS-Studio works under 64-bit Linux distributions with the Linux kernel versions 2.6.x and above. For analysis of C and C++ code for Linux, cross-platform applications and embedded systems, the appropriate compiler toolchains should be installed in the system.
PVS-Studio works under 64-bit macOS versions 10.9 and above. For analysis of C and C++ code, the appropriate compiler toolchains should be present in the system.
PVS-Studio for Java works under 64-bit Windows, Linux and macOS systems. Minimum required Java version to run the analyzer with is Java 8 (64-bit). A project being analyzed could use any Java version.
