Wind, fire, all that kind of thing!
Today I encountered the following error message on one of my servers (running Windows Server 2008) when I started Process Explorer:
exctrlst has been retired by Microsoft, but Server 2008 has a built-in command for managing performance counters:
lodctr. Listing the .NET counters didn't show anything out of the ordinary, though:
C:\>lodctr /q:.NETFramework Performance Counter ID Queries [PERFLIB]: Base Index: 0x00000737 (1847) Last Counter Text ID: 0x00001670 (5744) Last Help Text ID: 0x00001671 (5745) [.NETFramework] Performance Counters (Enabled) DLL Name: mscoree.dll Open Procedure: OpenCtrs Collect Procedure: CollectCtrs Close Procedure: CloseCtrs First Counter ID: 0x00001360 (4960) Last Counter ID: 0x0000140E (5134) First Help ID: 0x00001361 (4961) Last Help ID: 0x0000140F (5135)
Just rebuilding the performance counters by running
lodctr /r didn't fix the problem for me. I had to remove the counters for the .NET framework first and then rebuild them:
C:\>unlodctr .NETFramework Removing counter names and explain text for .NETFramework Updating text for language 009 C:\>lodctr /r Info: Successfully rebuilt performance counter setting from system backup store
After that rebuild Process Explorer started without error.
