Hex-Rays offers top-notch software reverse engineering solutions through various products, different types of licensing and discounts. IDA Pro 7.5, released in May 2020, introduces IDA Home as a replacement for IDA Starter.
Named licences are linked to a specific end user and may be used on the user’s laptop, and two desktop computers. They are a logical choice for private users but are also available to corporations and universities if and when only one end user uses the software.
Computer licences are linked to a specific computer and may be used by different end-users on that computer provided only one user is active at any time. This license type is suitable for corporations because they are not tied to physical persons and allow for easy license reassignment.
Floating (or Network) licenses can be installed on unlimited number of computers (in one organization) but allow only a limited number of simultaneously running copies.
IDA Home comes under a Named license scheme only and can be bought as an annual subscription. IDA Home replaces IDA Starter, which discontinues at version 7.4. IDA Starter users with an active support license can convert their license to one of the 5 IDA Home licenses (x86/x64, ARM/ARM64, MIPS/MIPS64, PowerPC/PPC64, Motorola 68K/Coldfire) or to IDA Pro. This conversion is free of charge; future support extensions will be at the cost of the chosen edition. Corporate customer’s licenses will be converted automatically to IDA Pro.
We offer free educational licenses to universities and other academic institutions that publicly enroll students on a regular basis. Military institutions do not qualify for educational licenses.
The educational license supports x86, x64, ARM, and ARM64 processors. It comes with a native local debugger for Windows or Linux. Python and IDC scripts are supported. Input files up to 1MB can be analyzed.
To apply, send us a formal request on the organization letterhead with the following information: the name and description of the course where IDA Educational will be used, the start date and duration of the course, the desired platform to run IDA Educational (Windows/Linux), the number of required seats, the title, name, and email of the professor

IDA does not run on Windows XP anymore and 32-bit systems in general, but remote debugging on WinXP is still possible.
Support for the WinDbg debugger backend is available only in the Windows version.
The Decompiler software is available for 6 platforms:
While x64, ARM64, PowerPC and PowerPC 64 decompilers can run only on top of IDA Pro, the x86 and ARM32 decompilers can run on top of both IDA Starter or IDA Pro. Check out the decompiler limitations before ordering.
