I am trying to attach VS2008 to debug a workflow hosted in IIS (using the workflow debugger option so I can step through the visual workflow designer breakpoints, not the managed code debugger).ÃÂ It is actually a WF 3.5 WCF workflow service hosted in IIS but I don't think that is the issue.ÃÂ When I attach from VS2008 I always get the error "Unable to attach to process.ÃÂ Access is denied."
I can attach for managed code debugging no problem.ÃÂ Also, if I configure the IIS worker process app pool to use the same account as the account I am running VS2008 under I can attach not problem and debug using the workflow debugger.
So my remaining problem is that I would like to be able to attach while running VS2008 as my normal user account and leave the w3wp.exe app pool running as the usual networkservice account so that my debugging represents how the w3wp.exe will act in production.ÃÂ I'm on Vista SP1 64-bit with .Net 3.5 SP1 and VS2008 SP1.ÃÂ
Q: Is there a special privilege I can grant the worker process account so that I can debug while using a different user account?
I saw a very old post here http://blogs.msdn.com/sonalic/archive/2006/05/10/594703.aspx
ÃÂ that hinted there is something special for 64-bit.ÃÂ Does anyone know if there is something special about 64-bi
