To reduce the chance of encountering problems when installing NVIDIA® Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition tools, consider several items in advance. For example, determine whether you want to run the tools on one machine and debug your application on another, or if you will debug on a single machine. Performing remote debugging can be advantageous because the Visual Studio environment will continue to run on the host machine even if the target machine has to be rebooted because an application crash.

Remote debugging allows you to debug over a network, which means that a target machine can be made easily available to a development team, or to members who do not have physical access to the target GPU.
