C# : The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as ReadOnly

Busy doing some work with a SQL component.

To check all was well, I set VS to break-point on all CLR exceptions and suddenly it came up with the above error.


Lots of discussions with Mr. Google and the usual ton of garbage but then I found this.

Run "cmd" as admin.

cd C:\Windows\Inf\.NET Data Provider for SqlServer

lodctr _dataperfcounters_shared12_neutral.ini

That did the trick.

BTW, lodctr "allows you to register or save performance counter name and registry settings in a file and designate trusted services".
