On a Windows 10 Pro machine when I try to run a perfmon /report I receive the following error, everytime

An error occured while attempting to generate the report.
The Data Collector Set or one of its dependencies is already in use.

Don't see anything to indicate an error in the Event log,
rebooted and receive the same error

Thanks for the help

What happens if you start perfmon and start some monitoring manually?

I would use procmon and log the attempt on a system where it works and compare the log to this system.

So there is no way of finding out why perfmon /report isn't running?

I would use procmon to find out - or at least try to find out.
