Where is the Remote Debugger for Visual Studio 2017?

    Question

  • I can't find the Remote Debugging tools for Visual Studio 2017. I checked the setup and Individual Components, and it's not listed there either. Is there a separate download for it somewhere? Is it replaced with something else? How do I remote debug a process not running on my machine?

    Thanks

    I always just run it directly from a share from where it's installed on my VS machine (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
    Studio\2017\Enterprise\Common7\IDE\Remote Debugger)

  • Thanks, I found this folder, and as it turns out, there was only one or two dll files in it. I compared the folder with a colleague, and believe my installation is corrupted. (which it did report some errors due to low disk space). I copied the required files from my coworker and it is working.

    Thanks!
