A free copy of Astrée with RuleChecker can be obtained by filling out our PDF form and sending it to us.
The software is available for Windows 10, 64-bit Linux, and macOS. The trial version is technically identical to the full commercial version in every respect, except that your license file will expire after 30 days.
If you have any questions before trying, email our customer support.
There’s no need to figure out the software by yourself or read the user manual cover to cover. Your trial begins with a free interactive online training via WebEx.
After only about 90 minutes, on a date and time of your own choosing, you are set to go. And it’s only then that your license file gets activated, so you still have a full 30 days left.
Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions during your trial. You can even request additional WebEx sessions if you need help with setting up an analysis, writing a complex annotation, or investigating a tricky part of your code.
All commercial licenses also include 180 days of free support and updates. Major new releases are published twice a year, meaning that you’ll receive at least one update for free.
RuleChecker is also available as a standalone tool from our partner QA Systems under the name QA-MISRA.
