Installation prerequisites

Before you install the Synopsys Code Sight extension, you should make sure your system is ready for it.

You should already have installed the following software:

Important: If you want to analyze source code written in a compiled language such as C, C++, C#, Java, and so on, then you need to provide information about creating a build to your project-specific coverity.conf file. See the following section, How do I enable Coverity (SAST) scans within Visual Studio Code?, for instructions on how to do so.
Important: If you want to analyze Kotlin source code, then you also need to provide Kotlin-specific information to your project-specific coverity.conf file. See Enabling analysis of Kotlin source code for instructions on how to do so.

If Coverity® Analysis is already installed on your system, the Code Sight extension is able to use it.

If Coverity Analysis is not installed, this is not a problem: The first time you run the extension, it can download and install Coverity Analysis automatically.
