Configure Source Search Directory

You need to configure source search directories to specify the source search locations needed to execute and analyze your target application. By default, if you do not specify source search directory, Intel Advisor searches the directories from the collected result. See Source Search Locations for details.
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).
Threading Advisor
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.
