Have you googled, you must have found following http://yatb.mitza.net/2012/03/debugging-tridion-2011-event-system.html


And to complement Raj's answer (Google is your friend): https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/y7f5zaaa.aspx


You will have good directions from google on setting up and debugging Tridion Event System and also from the link shared by Raj. You can also refer to 'https://tridionwithanupam.wordpress.com/2015/07/08/get-started-with-tridion-event-system' for mainly setting up Event system and debugging options.


Thanks Raj,Rick,Anupam for the links . I am new to tridion so thought of knowing the steps to get the process and attach it with my code(machine).

With that i found some thing too from SDL Site.

processes to Attach

And steps (not the one exactly i needed but it helped to found the trick- no need to have remote debugger installed in CMS just copy paste of exe from developers machine in CMS works)
