PVS-Studio C# dependencies
The PVS-Studio C# analyzer requires a number of additional packages. Depending on how PVS-Studio C# is installed these dependency packages will be installed automatically by the package manager, or they will need to be installed manually.
The analyzer requires .NET SDK 7.0 installed on a machine. Instructions for adding the .NET repository to various Linux distributions can be found here.
The .NET SDK for macOS can be downloaded from this page.
Note. When installing pvs-studio-dotnet via the package manager on Linux, the version of the .NET SDK required for the analyzer will be installed automatically, but the .NET repository must first be added manually.
The PVS-Studio C# analyzer requires the presence of the PVS-Studio C++ analyzer (pvs-studio) to work.
Note. When installing the PVS-Studio C# analyzer package (pvs-studio-dotnet) via the package manager, the C++ analyzer package (pvs-studio) will be installed automatically and you can skip this step.
When installing the C# analyzer via unpacking the archive, you must also install the C++ analyzer (pvs-studio). The C++ analyzer must be installed in the following directories:
- Linux: any directory whose path is written in the 'PATH' environment variable;
- macOS: /usr/local/bin/pvs-studio
