.NET CF Performance counters are missing

I'm developing a Compact Framework 2.0 application, using Visual Studio 2008 + SP1, on Windows 7.
I can use the .NET CF Remote Performance Monitor to view info while the application is running on the device.
Now I would also like to view some of that info in a graph, using the PerfMon application.

As soon as I check the menu option to "publish to perfmon", the Remote Performance Monitor stops working.
Also, If I start PerfMon and select "Add Counters", there are no ".NET CF" counters available.
I guess both problems are related (Remote Performance Monitor stops working because of the missing counters, or vice-versa).  

Any ideas?

It is now solved (thanks to a helpfull answer in the MS Forums).  The .NET CF RPM needs to run as an Administrator if you want to use the "publish to perfmon" option.
