This is driving me nuts!

I read about 30 MS Knowlege Base documents and solutions from EE and can't make it works.

I always get the error:

Unable to start debugging on the web server. the debugger is not properly installed

The facts:
-------------
- I am using VS.NEt 2003 on my computer.  I use c# to to asp.net on another server.
- Both are installed with the Framework SDK.
- Permission seems to be setup corectly (I am admin, I am in debugger groups)
- aspx is registered correctly on the remote server.
- A local standalone c# program will debug correctly.
- I have rereregistered the debugger on local and remote server.
- If i try to manually attch process, in asp_wp.exe, It work for Script ans MS T-SQL but not on Commun language runtime.

Please Help!

Thanks for your help.

I found someting working.  About ten links deeper in your page link.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vsdebug/html/vctskinstallingremotedebugmonitor.asp

Basically I was needed to install a Remote Debugger Tool on the server and from the server.  This is the link at the butom of the menu in the 1st CD of .net Studio2003.  Remote Tool or something like that.  Then, I works at my first try!

I noticed this problem went away after I went to IIS and the app's virtual directory, properties and then went to the Directory Security tab, clicked Edit under Secure Communication and turned OFF Require SSL!  

For those of you working in secure sites (with IIS Lockdown tool), having this problem, I hope that helps.
