I have been having some problems getting the Remote Debugging Components working with Visual Studio 2003 so hopefull someone will be able to help me here.
My Development machine is XP Pro SP2 and the Web Server that I am trying to debug on is a Windows Sever 2000 SP4 (It is also used as a Secondary Domain Controller)
I installed the the Remote Debugging Components onto the Server from the Visual Studio discs without a problem and had to tweak some things after I installed the Components per a KB article. I go into Visual Studio on my machine and hit F5 and I recieve the error:
"Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web server. The debugger component on the server failed to connect to the local machine."
Some of the Articles pointed at this being a security issue and the user trying to debug needed to be part of the Debuggers Group so I added myself to that group, albeit I am part of the Administrators group on that machine. This did not resolve anything.
Another KB article (though it was more about Server 2003 then 2000) said that DCOM Settings needed to be edited and tried that to no avail.
So I am somewhat at a loss here as I can't seem to find a resolution to my problem, does anyone have any idea as to what the problem might be?
I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.
