Performance counter fails when running against a remote system
Posted on 2008-10-21
The issue seems to be specific to the file "pdh.dll". I replaced this file with a version from the Windows XP cd, and I get the same error message. This only happens when running the performance counter against a remote machine. It will start, write a few lines of data to the file, then quit and brings up an error report window. When I run a similar performance counter against the local machine, it works just fine.
This worked fine just a few days ago, now it just errors out. Any suggestions as to what is causing this to happen?
