Do we have some kind of Equivalent of Solution generator 2008 (SharePoint 2007 to generate list definitions and site definitions via SharePoint 2007 UI and use it in our WSP) in SharePoint 2010?

I am using the version of Solution Generator installed with VSeWSS 1.2. I have VSTS2008 and WSS3 installed on a Win2k3 box, which we use for development. The solution generator works perfectly on
the local instance of WSS, but if I try and make a solution a any sites hosted on a remote box, I get the 'No SharePoint site exists at the specified location' error message. Does the solution generator only work on local sites?
The account I am using is a domain admin and a farm / site collection administrator and SQL sysadmin on both boxes hosting SharePoint. I'm trying to generate solutions from a live site to put into
source control. I don't really want to install visual studio on the live server as I am only intending to use it there for this one-time generation job.
