Download FxCop 10

FxCop is a tool that performs static code analysis of .NET code. It provides hundreds of rules that perform various types of analysis to ensure that your code follows Microsoft’s .NET Framework Design Guidelines.

Sadly the latest versions of FxCop are bundled within Microsoft Windows SDK. Since Microsoft doesn’t allow for their software to be distributed I cannot provide you with a standalone installer of FxCop myself, but at least I can take you through the steps to create one yourself.

For the next steps you will require a program that can open and extract files from both .cab files as well as .iso files. For this example I will be using WinRAR.

First you will need to download Microsoft’s Windows SDK which FxCop is bundled into. Choose a link below based on the CPU architecture you want.
