  • Question

  • PerfView gets this exception on a Windows 7 - 64 bit virtual workstation instance when trying to Run or Collect. Any idea how to determine the missing privilege details and correct this failure?

    >>A specified privilege does not exist.

    I doubt that your machine is running with a special security configuration. Please check your PerfView tool whether it is in a group policy or other privilege missing .
