How to source power cal E8362B VMC measurement?

Using an older E8362B (500Mhz CPU 06.04.32 firmware); how can I perform a source power cal when doing a VMC measurement? The source power cal option is greyed out although it looks like one could turn a source power cal correction on and off if there was one done. Is it even possible? I know that a source power cal is a critical part of an SMC measurment calibration. Why does it appear to not be an option for VMC?
I checked on a PNA-X and it appears you can do a source power cal when running VMC, but obviously that is a newer firmware version (9.33 I believe). If it can't be done on the E8362B; with which model and firmware was it introduced?

Thanks for any assistance anyone can provide
