A string containing the PATH/name.
Default is the current working directory.
Actions Modified
If your data files are stored in a separate location from the application, use the
option to specify the application working directory.
This command line example changes the application directory to
(on Windows*) and to
(on Linux*) to run the
application, uses binary and symbol files found in the directory specified by the
option to finalize the result, writes the result in the default result directory, and then returns to the working directory.
On Windows:

vtune-cl -collect hotspots -app-working-dir C:\myAppDirectory -search-dir C:\mySources -- myApp.exe
On Linux:

vtune-cl -collect hotspots -app-working-dir /home/myAppDirectory -search-dir /home/mySources -- myApp
