Remote debugging, I have tried absolutely everything, still no go!

Hello,

I use Visual Studio .Net 2003 Professional (Trial version) on Windows XP
Professional (Dutch version). I have a Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6 (UK
version). There is no domain, just a workgroup 'Servers' and a workgroup
'Acme'. My Web Project is in the root of a web site. Not the default
website, a new website, so it's not a virtual folder, it is a website with a
host header like this: project.acme.te st

On the Windows Server 2003, I ran the Visual Studio setup and chose only the
Remote Debugging components.

Now I cannot debug with Visual Studio. Here the error message:

---------------------------
Microsoft Development Environment
---------------------------
Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging on the web
server. Toegang geweigerd. (the last 2 words are Dutch for: "Access denied")

Click Help for more information.
---------------------------
OK Help
---------------------------

I have tried: all suggestions I get when clicking Help. To be clear: I can
answer all questions this Help asked with the proper answers that should
allow me to debug. For instance, the Help file starts with: Are you running
a version of Windows that allows the VS debugger to automatically attach to
a Web application? The answer is yes, I run Windows XP Professional. This
way I went through the whole Help document. No result.

Then I went through mr. Min Kwan Park's excellent document:
http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/csharp...erproblems.doc.
Well first of all, my specific error message is not there. But I still went
throught all relevant options for my situation, but without any result!

I am going completely crazy with frustration, and would appreciate any help
enormously!

Sincerely

-Michiel

Doh! I feel silly, I just found out it was my Windows Firewall that blocked
Visual Stduio debugging. But that's typical for Windows XP SP2, which is
something that was not yet considered in many documentation found on the
internet or supplied with VS 2003. So anyway, if you have this problme, turn
off the firewall, or get the utility provided by Microsoft for configuring
XP SP2 for remote debugging (that way, you keep the safety of the SP2
firewall). Find that utility here:

What a lifesaver!

I am trying to setup remote debugging on my first client-server setup, so hopefully this problem is just stupidity on my part. The client machine is running Windows XP Pro/SP2 with Visual Studio .NET 2002 and the server is Windows Server 2003 with the Server Components installed from VS. Both machines are in the domain, and the user is an administrator of both machines and has been added to the VS Developers group & the Debugger Users group...

I've tried on all severs in all directions and from several different workstations. I...

Hi, Wondering if someone could help me out. I'm trying to setup remote debugging of my C# app. I've followed the instructions in MSDN and I've setup full remote debugging on the target (in fact I have a full install of VS.NET 2003 on the target now). The problem is that it always runs locally. I've checked the RPC calls using RPCPING.exe and DCOM is setup correctly (as far as I'm aware).

Scenario: This is about debugging server side scripts that make calls to middle-tier business DLLs. The server side scripts are legacy ASP 3.0 pages, and the DLLs are managed DLLs converted/developed with VB.NET. What I want from debugging is to be able to step into the methods in the DLLs called from ASP scripts using Visual Studio .NET. Background: For typical script debugging issues, you can read and follow the two documents on...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
