It's not free. At http://www.viva64.com/en/pvs-studio/
it says "You may use it for 30 days and purchase it as this term expires."

So this is just trial software, not free software. Look up the definition of FREE some time.

Feedback: ok, here's mine. In my experience the trial period is usually too short. I have loads of things to do. Make the trial period unlimited and make sure the free version is free from nags and has as few limitations as possible. Of course you want us to buy, and if you make a genuinely useful contribution then some of us will. But trying to keep too tight a rein on your software will really limit your market. So if your software just has a 30 day trial then I'm not even going to bother.

For inspiration, look at AVG Free, and the Mikroelektronika compilers. These are both genuinely useful free versions of commercial software.

I think yes the title free is very misleading.

Trial for detecting 64-bit issues.

The general-purpose rule set lets you detect logical errors, misprints, code fragments causing access violation, incorrect use of STL library algorithms, etc. This set of diagnostic rules is free. You may use it without any functionality or time restrictions.
