Configure Binary/Symbol Search Directories

You need to configure binary/symbol search directories if your target application has non-standard directories with the supporting files needed to execute and analyze the target. By default, if you do not specify source search directory, Intel Advisor searches the standard OS directories. See Binary/Symbol Search Locations for details.
With Visual Studio* on Windows* OS, you can instead use the Visual Studio solution and project capabilities to search for specific directories.
