Error: Access Denied On Callback

This error occurs when the user trying to run msvsmon does not have an account on the local machine.

This error can also occur when trying to remote debug between older versions of Microsoft Windows and new versions of Microsoft Windows with a Server 2003 domain controller.

To fix this problem

  • Add a user account to the devenv machine with the same name and password as the user account running msvsmon, or

  • Run msvsmon as a user that has permission to call into the local machine. This means the user must be a domain user and an administator on the msvsmon machine. You can specify the user account to run msvsmon in one of two ways:

    • Right-click on the msvsmon icon and choose Run As from the shortcut menu, or

    • From the Command Prompt, run runas.exe.
