failed to start debug server

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a problem debugging applications executables on a remote desktop.

I have created a very simple vi to test the issue.

It contains only a while which generated random numbers every 100ms.

The vi is created in LV2013 and the development machine is running windows 7

I have generated an installer the includes the necessary runtime.

For the executable the ´enable debug´ is on.


The remote machine in running windows xp sp3.

I have checked and can confirm that the NI service locator is running.

Also I have manually added port tcp 3580.


When I first executed the .exe I got the popup to unblock the application in the firewall.

I choose the unblock option.


However after all these things I still get the error `failed to start debug server´ on the remote machine.

Does anyone  know a solution to the problem.

many thanks.
