Error Adding Performance Counters: Category does not exist.

May 15, 2013 at 4:09 PM
Hi,
I am receiving the above error when attempting to run monitor on a 2005 SQL server vitrual machine. I receive the same error runninig it remotely or on the server. Not sure what the error is telling me but I checked performance monitor and the SQL Server counters are present (don't know if this even matters). I can run monitor on another vitural machine running SQL Serer 2005 with no problems. Any help is greatly appreciated!
