Unable to install counter strings via registry and/or lodctr for extensible counter dll RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been trying to install my counter strings for a counter dll that I wrote.  The manual process does not work, as when I update the PerfLib/009/Counter and PerfLib/009/Help strings with CRegKey::SetMultiStringValue(...) it also returns a winerror of 1010.  Using RegEdit also fails.

    Lodctr also doesn't work as it does not update the PerfLib/LastCounter and PerfLib/LastHelp and makes no changes to the service key.  I have added the service key with appropriate Open/Close/Collect and Library key.

    And yes, I'm running lodctr, regedit, etc with elevated permissions. 

    I've tried with both 64-bit counters and 32-bit counters.... Since the PerfLib key is redirected, it really shouldn't matter.
