The PVS-Studio tool is intended for developers of contemporary applications and it integrates into the Visual Studio 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2005 environments providing the programmer with a convenient user interface to analyze files, navigate through code and get reference information. You do not need to study documentation and settings preliminarily to work with the analyzer. The analyzer is ready to work right after it is installed.PVS-Studio Features
Integration with Visual Studio 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2005; incremental analysis is the automatic triggering of the analyzer at the moment immediately after compilation commences at developer's local system; build-system independent file verification (through the compiler invocation monitoring system) by PVS-Studio Standalone; online-help; pdf-documentation; saving and loading of analysis results; capability of command line launch; support of all cores and processors; estimate of complexity of 64-bit code migration; interactive filters; convenient integration into the team development process; marking of program text with the purpose of checking new code only.
Supported languages and dialects
Easy-to-download! You may download the PVS-Studio distribution package without registering and filling in any forms. Easy-to-try! The PVS-Studio program is implemented as a plug-in for Visual Studio. The program is simple to install and does not require special setting before getting started. Easy-to-buy! Unlike other code analyzers, we have simple pricing and licensing policy. We will not ask you what size your application's code is or thrust training courses on you by phone. You decide what you need on the order page, pay the purchase and get the registration key by e-mail. Easy-to-support! It is the analyzer's developers who directly communicate with users, which enables you to quickly get answers to even complicated questions related to programming.

PVS-Studio is a static analyzer that detects errors in source code of C/C++ applications. There are sets of rules included into PVS-Studio:
General-purpose diagnosis Detection of possible optimizations Diagnosis of 64-bit errors (Viva64)
To learn more about each type of diagnosis, visit the corresponding pages.
The methodology of static code analysis we employ has significant advantages over other types of analysis since it allows you to cover the whole program code. The procedure of code check cannot damage the code itself in any way. The analysis process is completely controlled by person and it is the programmer who decides if it needs modification.PVS-Studio 7.01 (March 13, 2019)
The limit that existed in the trial version of the analyzer for Visual Studio plug-in, restricting a number of analyzer’s messages that can be viewed in the source code, is no more! Now, PVS-Studio for Windows uses the same trial mode as PVS-Studio on other platforms – you can get a fully functional trial license by filling out a form on the analyzer’s download page.
PVS-Studio C# rule V3080 (null dereference) is now able to detect potential dereferences when a reference can receive null in one of the execution branches. Inter-procedural analysis was improved.
PVS-Studio Visual Studio plug-in can now perform automatic checkouts on suppress files that are stored in TFVC (Team Foundation Version Control). This mode can be enabled on ‘Options… > Specific Analyzer Settings’ page.
V1036. Potentially unsafe double-checked locking.
V2529. MISRA. Any label should be declared in the same block as ‘goto’ statement or in any block enclosing it.
