Can't Find VS2010 Remote Debugger Configuration Wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm intrigued by the option to run msvsmon.exe as a service for ASP.NET development but I can't find the rdbgwiz.exe (Remote Debugger Configuration Wizard) shortcut in my Start menu under VS2010/Visual Studio Tools or under Program Files. I do have the remote debugger folder.

    I also have VS2008 installed and it does have a shortcut to rdbgwiz.exe pointing to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\rdbgwiz.exe". 

    Where can I find this wizard in VS2010 Ultimate? I've seen various tutorials that suggest it should be in the same place as VS2008 and I'm otherwise following the setup how-to:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/xf8k2h6a.aspx

    Secondly, is it possible to run this wizard on the target server where VS isn't installed?

    TIA,

    Michael

    Hi,

     

    I have VS2010 installed, and I also cannot find the rdbgwiz.exe in VS2010 folder.

     

    Did you try following instructions described in this document to set up remote debugging.


    Sincerely,

  • Hi Eric,

    More or less--I've been remote debugging in the same environment since VS2005 and have been through this article in the past; the remote debug experience itself works fine by running msvsmon.exe manually.

    Just checked a colleague's machine and he's the same, no wizard :-(

  • I'm not sure why the wizard is not shipped with VS2010 package, but you may install a standalone package of Visual Studio 2010 Remote Debugger, then, you can find the rdbgwiz.exe under "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE".

  • That's done it... ran the installer on my remote VM (as much as I like to keep my dev VM clean of VS guff but anyway) and it even kicked off the run as service wizard.

    Thanks Eric!
