Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Remote Debugger Light x64 - ITA

What is Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Remote Debugger Light x64 - ITA?

The Visual Studio remote debugger enables you to run, debug, profile, and test a Windows Store app that is running on one device from a second computer that is running Visual Studio. Running on a remote device can be especially effective when the Visual Studio computer does not support functionality that is specific to Windows Store apps, such as touch, geo-location, and physical orientation.


It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software installer includes 22 files and is usually about 14.13 MB (14,819,643 bytes).
