System Requirements

This section will help you verify that your system meets the minimum requirements for using C/C++test Standard.

Windows 64-bit

  • Windows 71, Windows 10, Windows Server 20081, Windows Server 20121, Windows Server 2016
  • 4GB memory minimum, 8GB recommended2
  • 2GHz or faster processor (x86_64-compatible), multi-CPU configuration recommended
  • Supported C / C++ compiler

1 Support for this platform is deprecated and will be removed in future releases.

Linux 64-bit

x86 architecture

  • Linux with glibc 2.12 (or newer)
  • 4GB memory minimum, 8GB recommended2
  • 2GHz or faster processor (x86_64-compatible), multi-CPU configuration recommended
  • Supported C / C++ compiler

MIPS architecture

Java Requirement

C/C++test requires Java 8 or higher to be installed on your machine.

  • Linux (Loongson/mips64el) with glibc 2.19 (or newer)
  • 4GB memory minimum, 8GB recommended2
  • Loongson-3A (mips64)-compatible processor, multi-CPU configuration recommended
  • Supported C / C++ compiler

Support for 32-bit Platforms (deprecated)

Support for 32-bit platforms is deprecated and will be removed in one of the future releases. For details about the deprecation policy, contact your Parasoft representative.

Windows 32-bit (deprecated)

  • Windows 7, Windows 10

  • 4GB memory minimum2

  • 2GHz or faster processor (x86-compatible), multi-CPU configuration recommended

  • Supported C / C++ compiler

Linux 32-bit (deprecated)

  • Linux with glibc 2.12 (or newer)
  • 4GB memory minimum2
  • 2GHz or faster processor (x86-compatible), multi-CPU configuration recommended
  • Supported C / C++ compiler

2 C/C++test  may allocate up to 1GB RAM on 32-bit machines or up to 2GB RAM on 64-bit machines for the Java Virtual Machine process. You can change memory allocation for the JVM process in the [INSTALL_DIR]/etc/cpptestcli.jvm configuration file (-Xmx option). When running an analysis, C/C++test’s native code analyzers will require additional memory, depending on the test configuration parameters.

IDE Integration

Parasoft C/C++test Standard can analyze locally buildable projects in your IDE . This section describes the requirements to import and work with findings in an IDE. To perform code analysis, ensure that your system meets the minimum system requirements.

Supported IDEs

  • Eclipse 4.2 - 4.15 (2020-03)
  • Visual Studio 2012, 2013, 2015,  2017, and 2019

  • Visual Studio Code1

1 This user guide only covers installation details; see Extension for Visual Studio Code. For information about supported features and usage, see the extension documentation in Visual Studio Code.

DTP Integration

If you connect your C/C++test instance to DTP, ensure that the DTP version you're connecting to supports your C/C++test version. For example, upgrading C/C++test to version 2020.2 requires upgrading DTP to version 2020.2.
