Visual Lint Downloads
This download area contains downloads for Visual Lint and supporting files. We advise you to take the time to read the licencing conditions at the bottom of the page before downloading this software.
To use Visual Lint, you will need at least one supported analysis tool (e.g. PC-lint, PC-lint Plus, CppCheck, Vera++, FxCop or FindBugs) and one or more supported development environments (Microsoft Visual Studio, Visual C++, Eclipse, CodeGear C++ etc.). Most are open source and can be downloaded freely (Visual Lint can guide you through this process); but some others (e.g. PC-lint and PC-lint Plus) are commercial products and must be purchased separately.
Note that if you wish to use PC-lint Plus with Visual Lint (which we would recommend for modern C++ code, or code using recent versions of Visual Studio or Eclipse) you should be aware that PC-lint Plus is licenced on a team basis and must be ordered directly from the vendor, Gimpel Software. Please write to Gimpel to ask for a quote for a team licence.

Please note that the licence agreement which follows relates to the current version of the software. The licence agreement for previous versions may differ, so if in doubt please refer to the licencing agreement supplied with your installation. If you have any queries regarding our licencing terms, please contact us.
You should carefully read the following terms and conditions before using this software. Unless you have a different licence agreement signed by an authorised representative of Riverblade Limited, your use of this software indicates your full acceptance of this license agreement and warranty.
Riverblade Limited, as Licencer, grants to you, the Licensee, a non-exclusive license to use this software program (hereinafter the "software") in accordance with the terms contained in this license.
Note that Visual Lint Build Server Edition is licenced on a per machine basis; all other editions are licenced per user.
All title and copyrights in and to the SOFTWARE, including but not limited to any images, texts, and sounds incorporated into the SOFTWARE, are owned by Riverblade Limited.
There are three types of licence: per-user (licenced per user), per-machine (licenced per machine) and floating (licenced for a maximum of 'n' concurrent users).
For maximum flexibility Visual Lint Professional and Enterprise Edition are available with both per user and floating licences. Visual Lint Build Server licences are per machine, and functionally equivalent to the per-user licences of other product editions. Visual Lint Personal Edition licences are per user.
Per user (and per machine) licences are valid for the purchased major version of the software (e.g. 4.x or 5.x) and can be used for an unlimited period provided the licence is only installed on computers used by the purchased number of licenced users. An upgrade licence must be purchased to upgrade from previous major versions of the software to the current one (e.g. 3.x or 4.x to 5.x).
Floating licences are subscription based and remain valid throughout the period of the subscription regardless of the version of the software used. If the subscription lapses, the licence can no longer be used.
Visual Lint Build Server licences are per machine, and functionally equivalent to the per-user licences of other product editions. Note that for licencing purposes each virtual machine counts as a distinct machine, and therefore each virtual machine hosting an installation of Visual Lint Build Server Edition will require its own licence.
Visual Lint is available in Personal, Professional, Enterprise and Build Server editions.
Visual Lint Personal, Professional and Enterprise Editions are licenced for use in interactive (i.e. those with a logged on physical user) environments only. For non-interactive or build/continuous integration server environments a Visual Lint Build Server Edition licence is required.
Visual Lint Personal and Professional Editions are licenced for use with one analysis tool (e.g. PC-lint or CppCheck) * and one Visual Lint plug-in (Visual Studio, Atmel Studio or Eclipse) per user.
Hence if you wish to use multiple analysis tools or Visual Lint plug-ins, an Enterprise or Build Server Edition licence is required.
Visual Lint Personal Edition is licenced for use by individual and freelance developers rather than organisations. If your organisation has more than one member of staff, you must use Visual Lint Professional Edition or above.
* For licencing purposes, PC-lint and PC-lint Plus are considered to be one analysis tool.
