Performance Monitor issue

I have a customer that has created some performance logs  and e-mailed them to me. I double click on any one of the dozen they sent and an error box pops up. It states "MMC cannot initialize the snap-in."
If I click on OK, the error box goes away and a box labeled "Reliabilty and Performance Monitor" opens up with a blank graph in it. If I try a File/open/filename, I get another error box that states MMC cannot open the file.
My boss has the same laptop with the same version of Vista and if I e-mail him the perflogs he can open them just fine. I have also checked the event logs on my laptop, and nothing is being written there.

Thanks in advance.

That's the way computers are. I would start procmon and see if it can shed some light on it. Make use of the crosshair icon (filtering) and select the opened RaPM.

The problem still has not been resolved, yet I played with it enough to get it working for what I needed.
