Dialog Box: Source Search

Use the Source Search dialog box to specify the directories used to search for source files on the host, which is required for data finalization and accurate source analysis. For remote data collection, if the source files are not available on the host, make sure to either copy them to the host or mount the directory with the source files and add it to the search paths.
