Unable to perform Smartbear- Add to review

On the Perforce client when I clicked on Smartbear- Add to Review I am
getting the below attached error. Tried a lot of ways to sort this out
but all in vain.
I request to please help me out to resolve this error.



//Error :

Please check the following to see if this resolves your PerForce issue:


This issue usually occurs in the system where the Perforce command-line client (p4) is not added to the environment path. Try to follow the steps below:

1. In the P4v client, select "Tools | Manage custom Tools | SmartBear - Add to Review" and click "Edit".
2. In the "Arguments" field, add the "--p4 your_current_path_to_p4" option after "--scm perforce".
Note: Don't change any other options.
3. Click "OK", restart the P4v client, and try to reproduce the issue.


If the issue still persists after following the steps above, ensure that the path to the "ccollabgui" file in the "Application" field of the "Edit Custom Tool" menu is correct, too.
