VS2012 Remote Debugger Installation on Web Server

    General discussion

  • I'm trying to install remote debugging on my Web server to debug an errant app, but not having any luck trying to start the install.

    I downloaded and installed  the Remote Debugging Tools for VS2012 (x64) and installed. At the end of the install I get an error: 

    The Windows Web Services installer failed to execute. The installer exited with error 'Data of this type is not supported'

    Ok... now what?

  • Hi Rick,

    Thanks for your post. However, in order to help you with your issue, I need the complete installation logs. You can follow the following steps to prepare the logs:

    1). Download the VS2012 Remote Tools from Microsoft official site here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/11/en-us/downloads#remote-tools
    2). Turn off anti-virus and antispyware.
    3). Clean %temp% folder (Start Menu->Run->type %temp%->OK).
    4). Run the remote tool installer with administrator privilege.
    5). Run the collect.exe tool to collect the installation logs in the %temp% folder.
    6). Upload the vslogs.cab file in the %temp% folder to the SkyDrive site and then send back the URL.

    Thanks.
