The debugger is not properly installed or
The debugger can not be started. Access is Denied or
Result of ‘CoCreateMachineDebugManager(&spMachine)’ is ‘80080005’
If anyone has these with Visual Studio .Net 2003…this is what I did….
I tried repairing it 3 times, adding me to the Debugger Users group, tried all the things found here..http://blogs.msdn.com/greggm/archive/2004/04/16/114828.aspx, tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
When I reinstalled, I got rid of the debugger is not properly installed error but then started getting the Access is Denied error again. Here is how I finally fixed it:
In Task Manager, stop the mdm.exe process.
Go to Start, Run and type dcomcnfg
Under Component Services, Computers, My Computer, DCOM Config, delete .Machine Debug Manager
At the command prompt, I ran this: “C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedVS7DEBUGmdm.exe” /regserver which put out the DCOM entry again.
And that was it.
