CodeRush/IDE Tools system requirements
This is another frequent question from new CodeRush users, which is not exactly specified anywhere yet because CodeRush does not really rely on hardware or software requirements – it should run OK everywhere your Visual Studio is installed.
Supported Operating Systems
CodeRush supports any operating system no matter whether it is 32 or 64 bits with Visual Studio installed.
Supported Visual Studio versions
The latest version of CodeRush supports Visual Studio versions starting from 2008. You can request previous product versions that work with earlier versions of Visual Studio from the DevExpress Support Team.
Visual Studio Express editions are not supported, because these versions do not support extensibility.
However, it is recommended that your Visual Studio has all latest service packs installed.
