I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to remote debug a ProcessBook Toolbar Add-In.  I'm using Visual Studio 2008 and the following setup:


* remote computer is on the same domain as dev computer
* logged into remote computer with same credentials as dev computer
* run msvsmon.exe on remote computer (Visual Studio 2008 remote debugger tool)
* added the appropriate registry key to remote computer to recognize that I'm loading a custom add-in
* have the "Debug" tab of my project setup for:
   * Start external program:  C:\Program Files\PIPC\Procbook\Procbook.exe
   * Working directory:  \\dev-computer\c$\path-to-x86\Debug     (this path is accessible to remote computer)
   * Use remote machine checked, value = remote computer name


When I run my project in debug mode, msvsmon.exe (on remote computer) logs that I connected and ProcessBook starts on remote computer, but always with the error "'MyAddIn' could not be loaded.  Remove it from the list of available Add-Ins?"


Is there a way to remote debug ProcessBook Add-ins?  If so, please explain.
