Counter Name and Description Additions to the Registry (Windows CE 5.0)
You must add information to the registry for the objects and counters you add to the system.
The following code example shows the registry location where performance counter names and descriptions are stored.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib Last Counter = highest counter index Last Help = highest help index HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009 Counter = 2 System 4 Memory Help = 3 The System object type
To add names and descriptions to the objects and counters for your application, use the lodctr utility included with the OS.
The lodctr utility takes strings from an .ini file and adds them to the Counter and Help values under the appropriate language subkeys. The lodctr utility also updates the Last Counter and Last Help values.
The following code example shows the values that the lodctr utility adds to the Services subkey for the application.
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Application_Name\Performance First Counter = lowest counter index First Help = lowest help index Last Counter = highest counter index Last Help = highest help index
