Configure Source Search Directory

Tab Purpose

Use this tab in the
Project Properties
dialog box to specify
the source search locations needed to execute and analyze the target.
With Visual Studio, some source locations are pre-populated from the Visual Studio startup project into the internal representation of
Intel Advisor
project properties, so you may not need to add new row(s).
For
Threading Advisor
only:
Intel® Advisor
does not automatically populate source locations after you create a project using the
Intel® Advisor
GUI, so you must specify one or more locations to find application annotations. View the
Annotation Report
to verify all project annotations are found.
