Also to run the macro, try using the Ctrl+Q shortcut menu in VS 2013, as follows

Or customise your toolbar


The attach to process macro will now look like this as a new Visual Commander command using VB v4.0 language
Imports EnvDTE
Imports EnvDTE80
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Public Class C
    Implements VisualCommanderExt.ICommand

    Sub Run(DTE As EnvDTE80.DTE2, package As Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Package) Implements VisualCommanderExt.ICommand.Run
        AttachToProcess("MyProcessName.exe", DTE)
    End Sub

    Private Sub AttachToProcess(ByVal ProcessName As String, DTE As EnvDTE80.DTE2, Optional ByVal Script As Boolean = False)
        Try
            Dim dbg2 As EnvDTE80.Debugger2 = DTE.Debugger
            Dim trans As EnvDTE80.Transport = dbg2.Transports.Item("Default")
            Dim dbgeng(1) As EnvDTE80.Engine
            If Script Then
                dbgeng(0) = trans.Engines.Item("Script")
                'Array.Resize(dbgeng, 1)
            Else
                dbgeng(0) = trans.Engines.Item("Managed")
            End If
            Dim proc2 As EnvDTE80.Process2 = dbg2.GetProcesses(trans, System.Environment.MachineName).Item(ProcessName)
            Call proc2.Attach2(dbgeng)
        Catch ex As System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException
            Select Case ex.ErrorCode
                Case -2147352565
                    ShowMessage(ProcessName & " is not currently a running process")
                Case -1989083106
                    ShowMessage("You are already attached to " & ProcessName)
                Case Else
                    ShowMessage("Unhandled error message from Attach to process macro")
            End Select
        Catch ex As System.Exception
            MsgBox("Unhandled exception occurred: " & ex.Message)
        End Try

    End Sub
    Private Sub ShowMessage(ByVal message As String)
        Call MsgBox(message, MsgBoxStyle.Exclamation, "Attach to process macro")
    End Sub


End Class
