To debug Visual Studio 2015 applications deployed to other computers, I used the Remote Debugger Visual Studio 2015 . Now, I decided to switch to Visual Studio 2017 , everything is successful, the projects are working and everything is going. But I can’t find a remote debugger for the new version of the development environment, where can I find it? This functionality is not yet available? In the VS2017 itself there are the items Debug = & gt; Attach to Process ... but where to get the debugger itself, for installation on the server?
Found debugging utilities on MSDN for 2012, 2013 and 2015 versions only: Remote Debugging
For reference, Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise Edition installed
A remote server where the remote debugger for VS2015 was previously installed and successfully paired with it: Microsoft Windows Server 2012

The menu item was not created during installation. But the debugger was found in the same place as in previous versions – along the path
C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Microsoft Visual Studio \ 2017 \ Enterprise \ Common7 \ IDE \ Remote Debugger \ x64 (and respectively x86-version side by side). He himself is, just a shortcut is not created. It is enough to copy the x64 / x86 folder to the remote machine and run the msvsmon.exe
file with administrator rights

After a long search on MSDN for the remote debugger for Visual Studio 2017 , I found one rather interesting article: Remote Debugging published November 4, 2016. There is an item: Download and Install the Remote Tools is exactly what you need. Follow the link to the page Visual Studio Downloads , there we find the item: Tools for Visual Studio 2017 , expand the list and find Remote Tools for Visual Studio 2017 and download the debugger of the required version by clicking on the Download button kbd>opposite the menu item.
