I'm just trying to get started with this sample but I'm unable to get it to launch. Using the ProjectLauncher addin does nothing visible (after choosing the project and clicking Launch). It seems slightly worse than the previous release, which appeared to launch, but then crashed right away in the UNLOAD
DEBUG_EVENT case in WorkerAPI.cpp.
I also tried attaching from a __debugbreak()'d test, and selecting "Manually choose the debugging engines". "Sample Debug Engine" appears in that list, but VS says:
The requested attach was not completely successful.
Successfully attached these type(s) of code:
Failed to attach to these type(s) of code:
Sample Debug Engine: The debugger is not properly installed. Cannot debug the requested type of code. Run setup to install or repair the debugger.
(Vista x64 in case that matters)

Just a follow up, dbg.LaunchDebugTargets is returning 0x89710016.
The only relevant information I could find is http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1234362&SiteID=1 but unfortunately, that doesn't solve the problem (with VS 2008, the CLSID is in Wow6432 already). Does seem like the problem is probably x64 related though, I guess.
Also tried starting the subprocess (undebugged) rather than using the addin Launcher, and then Attach to Process'ing from VS, but no better:
Microsoft Visual Studio
Unable to attach to the process. The debugger is not properly installed. Cannot debug the requested type of code. Run setup to install or repair the debugger.

I had this problem also. Turned out I had an old add-in registered for the projectLauncher. When removing this from the addin-folder. and recompiling the ProjectLauncher project (this registered the add-in anew) Everything was just fine.
