What types of licenses for PVS-Studio do you have?

There are two license types for PVS-Studio:

  • License for a team consisting of one to nine persons.
  • Enterprise License for a large department or even a company (10 persons and more).

What does the license include?

  • the right to use the tool for 1 year;
  • the right to use the product in a team of up to 9 persons, the program being installed only on one computer of each user;
  • if you purchase the Enterprise License, the product can be used by all the developers of your department/division;
  • free updates (including major-versions) for 1 year;
  • user support via e-mail for 1 year.

I want to buy Single User License but I can't find it. Why?

You need the license for a team. The reasons are explained in the answer to the question: "Licensing of PVS-Studio: why don't we have Single User License?".

Is there a demo-version of PVS-Studio? Can I download it?

Yes, there is. You can download it. The demo-version's limitations are described here.

The analyzer includes several different rule sets. Can I buy only some of them?

No, you cannot. The analyzer can't be divided.

Can I use the standard license on a build server?

Yes, a build server is an ordinary computer and it needs a licensed tool to be installed on it as well. Our standard license for a team of up to nine developers can be applied to a build server. If you have several build servers and a large developer team, then consider purchasing the Enterprise License.

Are these licenses named licenses (registered to concrete users)?

The license is a pair "name/value" into which some additional information is encoded (including the date). One and the same license is used on all the computers both in case of the standard license (for a team of up to nine persons) and the Enterprise License.

Do you have floating-licenses?

No - because we have very handy Enterprise Licenses. If you think that you need a floating-license, just have a look at our Enterprise Licenses.

Your prices are too high!

No, they are not. Compare them to Parasoft, Klocwork, Coverity and other static analysis tool developers. But don't compare them to Visual Studio! Even the people from Microsoft themselves tell that their developer tool department is loss-making.

I have a question about a license renewal!

Most likely, we've answered it at the renewal page. If not, then write to us.

Where do I enter the registration information after purchasing PVS-Studio?
