    PS 2014 CC: Can't Start Remote Debugging for JS/HTML5 Extensions with Chrome

    smallsketch Level 1



      I'm very new to extension building and Creative Cloud. After learning about the death of Configurator and Flash-based panels, I've decided to learn how to use JS/HTML5 for panel creation.

      After launching my extension in Photoshop, I am unable to see or utilize the Chrome Debugger. I get the "Very sad face" error stating "This webpage is not available: ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED".


      I'm currently trying to make panels for Photoshop CC 2014 and remotely debug using Chrome. I've followed various tutorials, some utilizing Adobe Extension Builder 3 + Eclipse, others just building the file structure manually and placing in the correct directory (AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CEP\extensions).


      Here is my system info:

      Adobe Photoshop Version: 2014.2.2 20141204.r.310 2014/12/04:23:59:59 CL 994532  x64

      Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit


      This was the main tutorial I followed:
      A Short Guide to HTML5 Extensions | Adobe Developer Connection


      Some notes about my process:


      I am able to see and load the extension under Window>Extensions.

      I have set the correct registry value to allow for debugging (PlayerDebugMode = 1) at HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Adobe/CSXS.4 and HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Adobe/CSXS.5
      I've created a .debug file using the command line: "copy con .debug" then "CTRL+Z"

      I then put the following into that newly created file:



      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


          <Extension Id="com.example.helloWorld">


                 <Host Name="PHXS" Port="9087"/>





      Please, if something in this process has changed for the current version of Photoshop CC 2014, which is preventing me from performing remote debugging, please let me know. Thanks!
