Perfmon fails to run any program
Posted on 2009-04-09
I have configured perfmon on a windows xp 64 bit machine to monitor the cpu usage of a running process.
If I tell it to log an entry in the event log this works fine, but if I ask it to launch a batch file, it fails to launch the batch file and logs an entry in the event log stating:
"Unable to execute command '' for the checkbatch alert. The alert will continue as scheduled. The error code returned is in the data."
i have tried selecting some command arguments, and no command arguments. and it doesnt seem to matter what script of app im trying to launch, i tried notepad.exe and this also fails to pop up when the alert is triggered.
so its log in event viewer, but doesnt run any program. any ideas?
