Debugging DotNet component on Coldfusion Server

Here is a recipe to setup Visual Studio debugging of remote Coldfusion server's .NET application.

Environment: Visual Studio 2012, Coldfusion 9
  1. Coldfusion Server: 
    1. install "Remote Tools for Visual Studio 2012 Update 2"
    2. Start "Remote Debugger Configuration Wizard" and configure accordingly
    3. Start "Remote Debugger" As Administrator
  2. Visual Studio computer:
    1. Click Debug > Attach to Process
    2. In "Qualifier" type the Coldfusion server's computer name
    3. Check "Show processes from all users"
    4. Click "Refresh"
    5. Select "JNBDotNetSide.exe"
    6. Click "Attach"


To see it in action, set a break point in your code, load a Coldfusion page that invokes your .NET application, Visual Studio debugger should break accordingly.
