IDA 7.0 SDK: Porting from IDA 4.9-6.x API to IDA 7.0 API


The SDK now only supports the new 7.0 API in x64 mode. The old SDK 6.95 can be used to develop plugins for IDA 7.0-x86 (which is ABI-compatible with IDA 6.95).

While the API has been revamped somewhat, most basic concepts still hold.

There are still two variants of IDA: one supporting 32-bit (ea_t is 32-bit) and the other 64-bit address space (ea_t is 64-bit). IDA database extensions remain correspondingly '.idb' and '.i64'.

Naming of IDA binaries has been unified across all OS variants:

General approaches that were taken when cleaning up the APIs:


Common porting steps for plugins/loaders/modules:

Renamed/removed header files

Some headers have been renamed and/or removed:

original name new name
ints.hpp <removed>
sistack.h <removed>
area.hpp range.hpp
queue.hpp problems.hpp
srarea.hpp segregs.hpp

Commonly used renamed structs and fields

original name new name
area_t range_t
areavec_t rangevec_t
endEA end_ea
startEA start_ea

area-related methods have been renamed too (e.g. 'prev_area' -> 'prev_range').

Porting plugins.

The plugin entry prototype has been changed from:


The input parameter is now of type 'size_t', which allows passing a pointer as the argument of run() for extra possibilities.

The rest of the plugin interface is unchanged.

Porting loaders

The prototype for 'accept_file()' has been changed from:


The desired processor may be returned in the 'processor' output parameter.

The return value has been extended with flags 'ACCEPT_ARCHIVE' and 'ACCEPT_CONTINUE'.

Loaders can also process and extract archives now. If you detect an archive, the return value for 'accept_file' should be ORed with the 'ACCEPT_ARCHIVE' flag. After extraction, all loaders are queried again, which means IDA can now handle multiply nested archives.

Non-archive loaders should extend the return value with the 'ACCEPT_CONTINUE' flag.

Porting processor modules

WARNING: The global variables 'cmd' and 'uFlag' are gone.

Most APIs return or accept an 'insn_t' structure with instruction details.

The 'processor_t' structure has had many unused and obsolete fields removed, such as 'flag2', 'rFiles', 'rFnames', 'rFdescs', and 'CPUregs'.

Most callbacks are now handled centrally via the 'notify()' function:

original name new name
header ev_out_header
footer ev_out_footer
segstart ev_out_segstart
segend ev_out_segend
assumes ev_out_assumes
u_ana ev_ana_insn
u_emu ev_emu_insn
u_out ev_out_insn
u_outop ev_out_operand
d_out ev_out_data
cmp_opnd ev_cmp_opnd
can_have_type ev_can_have_type
is_far_jump ev_is_far_jump
getreg ev_getreg


Change the prototype of 'ana' from:


You may then declare an 'insn_t' reference variable to simplify your code:

Then replace all uses of 'cmd' by 'insn'. You will likely need to pass 'insn' to other helper functions that used 'cmd'.


Change the prototype of 'emu' from:


Then replace all uses of 'cmd' by 'insn'. You may need to adjust some code if it was relying on cmd being writeable.


The output functions now use a context structure ('outctx_t') instead of operating on a global buffer.

You must declare a class inheriting from 'outctx_t' and override its methods or add new ones for non-standard functions. For example:

class out_myproc_t : public outctx_t
  void outreg(int r) { out_register(ph.reg_names[r]); }
  void outmem(const op_t &x, ea_t ea);
  bool outbit(ea_t ea, int bit);

  bool out_operand(const op_t &x);
  void out_insn(void);
  void out_mnem(void);

Then use one of the two macros from idaidp.hpp:

or, if you implement 'out_mnem':

Then prefix old function names with your class and rename them to match methods. For example, from:

  void idaapi out(void);
  void out_myproc_t::out(void);


  bool idaapi outop(op_t &x);
  bool out_myproc_t::out_operand(const op_t &x);

Then remove calls to 'init_output_buffer()' and uses of the buffer variable.

Other changes that must be made are:

Most of the other code can remain intact or can be replaced by the new helper functions.

For other output-related callbacks, convert them to take an 'outctx_t &ctx' parameter and use its methods. For example, from:


See the changes to 'ua.hpp' below for more information on converting the functions.

Also, see the SDK samples for more ideas.


Remove the old callbacks from the 'processor_t' structure and call them from the 'notify()' function instead. For example:

    case processor_t::ev_ana_insn:
        insn_t *out = va_arg(va, insn_t *);
        return myproc_ana(out);

For 'ev_out_insn', call 'out_insn()' generated by the macro in out.cpp:

    case processor_t::ev_out_insn:
        outctx_t *ctx = va_arg(va, outctx_t *);
        return 1;

NOTE: Please note that in IDA version 6.7 we introduced the Actions API, which deprecated many functions related to augmenting functionality in IDA.

Those previously deprecated functions have been removed. For more details about the Actions API, please visit our old blog post from 2014:

NOTE: 'TForm', 'TCustomControl', and 'TWinControl' have been replaced by 'TWidget'

NOTE: global variable 'dirty_infos' has been removed.

WARNING: The global variables 'cmd' and 'uFlag' are gone.

All functions previously operating on 'cmd' now accept an 'insn_t' pointer or reference. Use get_flags() (or, if you really need it, get_full_flags()) to read the current flags.

NOTE: The maximum number of instruction operands (UA_MAXOP) has increased to 8.

NOTE: class 'outctx_base_t' has been added to replace functions that generate the disassembly text

NOTE: global variable 'lookback' has been removed.
