Hi Bob,

Any chance you could step through the process?

I'm wondering if I missed a vital undocumented step. It all seems fairly
straightforward but I just can't work out where I've gone wrong?  I have
downloaded what I believe to be the latest version of the perf2mib exe from
Microsoft's web site but that still doesn't work....in fact I found a bug
report on the web site about the difficulty of stepping through perfmib
tables but it didn't indicate that there had been a fix?

regards paul
