How to debug on remote machine RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi

    The Visual Studio remote debugger enables you to run, debug, and test a Windows Metro style app that is running on one device from a second computer that is running Visual Studio. Remote debugging can be especially effective when the Visual Studio computer does not support functionality that is specific to Metro style apps, such as touch, geo-location, and physical orientation. When you start debugging (F5), the debugger rebuilds, deploys, and starts your project on the remote device.

  • A number of the samples in the SDK have the build target set to ARM by default, in which case the only debug option is Remote Machine. Set the target to x86 or x64 and you'll see the Local Machine and Simulator options. This only happens with samples that have C++ components, like this one, otherwise the target for HTML/JS apps is typically "Any CPU".
