Installing a Debugger on a Remote Machine
Go Up to Debugging Applications Index
To debug a project on a machine that does not have RAD Studio installed, you must install the remote debugger executable files. You can install these files either directly from the installation disk or by copying them from a machine that has RAD Studio installed.

- Files from the machine that has the IDE installed if the installation disk is not available.
To install the remote debugger from the installation disk
- Insert the installation disk into the remote machine.
- Choose Install Remote Debugger.
- Follow the instructions provided by the wizard.
- The file name RemoteDebugger.exe on the product DVD is the Remote Debugger installer. You can copy this onto your developer workstation (your RAD Studio machine) to make deploying the remote Debugger to new target machines easier.

<nnn>code varies from product version to product version. For RAD Studio XE, the version number is 150, so the main remote debug client executable is
- Copy the files from your local machine to the directory you created on the remote machine.
- On the remote computer, register bordbk<nnn>.dll and bordbk<nnn>n.dllby running the regsvr32.exe registration utility.
For example, on Windows XP, enter C:\Windows\System32\regsvr32.exe bordbk<nnn>.dll at the command prompt, then enter:
