I am interested in creating/updating performance counters from a VB6 application for monitoring via an external application (note: I have already written the monitoring app in VB.NET to monitor windows & .NET apps).  

I am mainly looking for a good point in the right direction, but of’ course I’ll award extra points if someone has an easy solution.

First thing would be to measure time a little bit more accurate :

Milliseconds:
 MyTime = Format(Now, "dd-MMM-yyyy HH:nn:ss") & "." & Right(Format(Timer, "#0.00"), 2)

Hope this helps,
Dextro

Dextro,
Thanks, but that's not what I'm looking for.  I'm looking for an interface to the windows performance counters.  I'm sorry if my original message was a little vague.  In VB.NET, this can be accesses via the System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter namespace, but I'm looking for something similar in VB6.

Typo: accesses = accessed

OK....

Have a closer look to the following :

http://www.vbcodemagician.dk/resources/perfs.htm

You'll find the VB6 source-codes for compiling a dll which allows to retrieve the performance counters of Windows. (As an example the (VB6° dll is used in a VBS - script, but can be used in a "normal" vb6 program as well)

Regards,
Dextro

Well...the guy asked a way to access the performance counters of Windows in VB6. Without further notice, I'm pretty sure this is what the latest link I added is providing.
