VMWare debugger add-in?

I was saddened to discover that VMWare discontinued the VM debugger add-in, which used to let Visual Studio on the host machine attach to a process inside the VM for debugging.

Are there any replacements for this technology?
The add in would attach directly to the process in the VM. Remote debugging requires installing client software on the target machine. It's not hard to do, but it's a bit annoying to get it configured -- so I'd rather avoid it.

On top of it, I'm not sure Microsoft supports remote debugging anymore. My project is still on Visual Studio 2013, which is currently Update 5. The download page for the remote debugging install doesn't list anything past Update 4. Maybe I'll have to wait until my team upgrades to a newer toolset before I can get remote debugging working.
