Remote Debugging in VS.NET 2003 - It's Crazy (!)


I spent a few hours today setting up remote debugging in VS.2003

I had to disable the firewall, subvert the security scheme and let anonymous
users have full access to my COM+ objects on my Windows XP workstation, but
other than that, it was smooth sailing.

And, oh yeah. I also have to run remote desktop sharing terminal between
my XP workstation and the W2K target or I can't RPC to the destination
machine.

Is that sane?

Am I normal?

Or is it just standard practice to do that?

Remote debugging is not a recommended scenario, so it is crazy to set up. In
most scenarios, the source repository (SourceSafe or other) controls the
files, so the user actually edit and debug locally. There are no major hoops
for local debugging.

If you think .NET is nuts, you should go back to Visual InterDev.

So, are you recommending installing Visual Studio on my target machine ?

Ok, I got it working now.

I had to set up my supporting DLLS to use "remote debugging" and specify
the remote server on which they were located in the property configuration.

Then, I also deleted an entry in the GAC for those DLLS ( which I had
put in there yesterday for no good reason ).

Now my remote service is hitting break points /and/ hitting break points
in the supporting dlls (!)

The MSDN documentation on remote debugging is a bit sparse, to say the least, and there is almost no information available on the 'best' way to configure this. I should note that my development system is Windows XP Pro and the test machine is Windows 2003, both running the latest upgrades; Visual Studio 2005 is installed on the development system and the .Net 2.0 framework is installed on the test system. The two systems do not have the...

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,...
