Unable to remote debug on my surfacert

    Question

  • Hi:

    I am running Win 8.1 on my desktop using VS 2013.  I have a Win 8 Store app that I can debug locally as well as on the simulator.  I am trying to debug on my surface.

    I have downloaded and installed Remote Tools for Visual Studio 2013 version 12.0.21005.1 on my Surface RT upgraded to win 8.1.  The installation appeared to be successful, but I'm thinking the rdbgwiz.exe configuration program is unable to run. It keeps giving ma the following error:

    c:\program files\microsoft visual studio 11.0\common7\IDE\rdbgwiz.exe

    Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.  A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.

    Any suggestions?

  • Figured it out. I had the remote debugger installed for VS2012, then upgraded my RT to 8.1, then updated my VS to 2013. Along the way , the RT didn't clean itself up. I deleted the VS2012 remote debugger and reinstalled the 2013 remote debugger.

  • FYI, you can run both remote debuggers at the same time (in 8.1). Deploying apps targeted to 8.0 still requires to VS2012 debugger on 8.1 (at least it does with VS Express).

    So if you have 8.0 apps you should also re-install the VS2012 debugger.
