Error with Expression Evaluator - when debugging against Remote Windows 8.1 machine

    Question

    • VS 2013 Update 3
    • Xamarin
    • Android and Windows Store Projects

    When I am debugging the Windows Store App against a Remote Surface Pro 2 machine I get the following error 

    "An error occured while attempting to load an expression evaluator dll.."

    This mean I cannot inspect any variables, no watch window, no tooltip inspection. Breakpoints and F10 F11 "stepping- through" code execution works fine.

    This only happens when debugging the Windows Store App remotely, if I run against my local Windows 8.1 desktop there is no error.

    Any idea why this might be?

    Thanks

  • Hi Pat Long,

    You mean the problem only with remote debug on Surface Pro 2?

    Could you double check if you installed the correct version of Remote Tool? Read this for more information: Installing the Remote Tools.
