When opening a result as a read-only file, you are only viewing the previously collected data as a read-only file. The following limitations apply:
  • The
    Annotation Report
    window does not contain any data. To view the
    Annotation Report
    , you need to open a result after opening its Solution.
  • The
    Suitability Report
    window shows data, but you cannot change the modeling parameters, such as the
    Target System
    or the
    Threading Model
    .
  • If you modify your sources or
    Intel® Advisor
    annotations, you need to open the solution to collect data and perform analysis (see Opening a Result) to update the result and view
    Annotation Report
    data.
