About This File

This (completely!) free version of IDA offers a privilege opportunity to see IDA in action. This light but powerful tool can quickly analyze the binary code samples and users can save and look closer at the analysis results.

What’s included in the pack?

  • Analyze both 32-bit and 64-bit applications
  • Cloud-based x64 decompiler
  • Local x86/x64 debugger included
  • Support x86/x64 processors
  • Save your analysis results
  • Perpetual license

The freeware version of IDA v7.6 comes with the following limitations:

  • no commercial use is allowed
  • lacks all features introduced in IDA > v7.6
  • cloud-based decompiler lacks certain advanced commands
  • lacks support for many processors, file formats, etc…
  • comes without technical support

  • BUGFIX: UI: when using dark theme on macOS, selected items in tree views could be colored incorrectly.
  • BUGFIX: UI: list of local types could change after enabling folders
  • BUGFIX: UI: opening an ida_kernwin.PluginForm at a specific position could fail
  • BUGFIX: UI: quick searching (i.e., by simply typing a string) in tabular/tree views might not yield the expected results.
  • BUGFIX: UI: rebasing a tree widget could cause IDA to show empty entries
  • BUGFIX: UI: scrolling in the navigation band could jitter with very segmented address spaces
  • BUGFIX: UI: searching for all occurrences of a binary data in "Hex View-1", closing "Hex View-1" and then attempting to jump, would cause IDA to crash
  • BUGFIX: UI: selecting a portion of an identifier for highlighting, and then searching up/down (Alt+Up/Alt+Down) for that text, would cause the entire identifier to become highlighted
  • BUGFIX: UI: sorting folders would only sort folders contents, but not the folders themselves
  • BUGFIX: UI: the 'grabbable' band for a floating window (used to dock it back) was not easy to spot
  • BUGFIX: UI: the "Current line" message could fail to display in some views when folders were enabled
  • BUGFIX: UI: the "Watch List" window wouldn't refresh when one of its items was renamed from the disassembly listing
  • BUGFIX: UI: the column "func#" in the Signatures list was not properly sortable as a number
  • BUGFIX: UI: types could be duplicated in the folder view of 'Local types' window
  • BUGFIX: UI: Undo wouldn't cause previously-rebased 'Imports' to get their original address back
  • BUGFIX: UI: using quick filtering with a regex, wouldn't highlight the part of the string that matches (as it does for lexicographical searches)
  • BUGFIX: UI: when folders are enabled in tabular views, 'Copy/Copy all' could fail to work as expected.
  • BUGFIX: UI: when folders were enabled on certain widgets, and the IDB was saved (e.g., by clicking on the 'save' icon), but then not saved again when closing, the widget would show up in no-folders mode
  • BUGFIX: UI: when switching to a folders-enabled chooser, the folders might fail to have focus
  • BUGFIX: UI: with certain fonts, the 'registers' widget could truncate the register names/values by a few pixels, making it harder to read
  • BUGFIX: UI: zooming in the navigation band, could lose locality
  • BUGFIX: Using "Jump to local type..." in a Pseudocode view's context menu wouldn't expand the tree of types to the right place (assuming the "Local types" has been toggled to be using folders.)
  • BUGFIX: debugger: single-stepping could be sluggish with multi-threaded apps, especially in the Mac debugger (see Debugger>Debugger options>Optimize single-stepping. it is enabled by default for Mac debugger).
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: "create new struct type" could generate a new struct type with forbidden characters, like <
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: arm64: some references to external symbols would not be resolved
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: assignments to members of structurs later passed by reference could be optimized away
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: automapping variables was too aggressive in some cases
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: bit-manipulation instructions 16-bit registers were emulated incorrectly (shift count is only 4 bits for them)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: changing the type of a structure field would cause the loss of the __cppobj attribute
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: decompile() would crash if asked to decompile an unexisting function (nullptr)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: decompiler could crash after using "extract func" if a pseudocode window with the deleted function info was present
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: fixed a crash in the recognition of magic divisions
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: fixed a crash on corrupted idbs
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: fixed an endless loop (extremely rare)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: fixed interr 52194
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: global xref cache could become stale after a user action that was changing only the line numbers (like adding a comment)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases 'split expression' had no effect
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases action "Reset pointer type" was not working (had no effect)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases decompiler could generate a wrong post-increment/decrement operator
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases the decompiler would add a suffix to the user-defined names (myvar->myvara)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: in some cases the user could not add variadic arguments to a function call
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: jumping to the pseudocode from another window (for example, from the local types) would fail to activate the window in some cases
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: ppc: fixed address arithmetics when subtracting addresses
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: recognition of inlined memset() was too aggressive in some cases (a xor loop could be converted to memset)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: renaming a structure field would cause the loss of the __cppobj attribute
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: shifted pointers with negative offsets were not always applicable
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: some assignments could not be split
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: some xrefs to enum members would be missed by Ctrl-Alt-X
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: stale cached pseudocode was not refreshed in some cases
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: the decompiler could crash when displaying the global xref list if the cache was stale
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: trying to rename a variable as "@@x" would lead to a fatal error
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: while(2){switch...} could be decompiled incorrectly in some cases
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: wrmsr instruction could be decompiled wrongly (value of edx was unused)
  • BUGFIX: decompiler: x87 fscale instruction was decompiled incorrectly
  • BUGFIX: windbg: segment bitness could be determined incorrectly
