Unable to start debugging on remote machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Development Machine: Windows 8 RTM x64 and Visual Studio 2012 Update 1

    Testing Machine: ARM tablet - Windows RT build 9200 -  has remote debugging tools installed Update 1

    App: C# + XAML + Some native WinMD components

    Debugger Type: Managed Only

    I can debug locally and in simulator but for some reason when I try to debug remote on the ARM tablet, the application gets deployed, it even starts on remote tablet, the splash screen of the app comes up and immediately I get error in visual studio:


    Unable to start debugging


    The system cannot find the file specified


    Its strange as the reported path is correct and the exe is there. And it did start the splash screen but then the error.

    Just curious, when I double clicked the reported exe on the ARM tablet, it says

    "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file... signed incorrectly or damaged..."

    When I try to start the app from the start screen on ARM tablet, it starts fine and there are no issues.
