PlatformNotSupportedException

The platform is Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Me), which does not support performance counters.

You can write values only to counters that reside on the local computer. However, you can read counter values from any computer in the enterprise for which you have access privileges.

When you set the MachineName property to point to a remote computer, the PerformanceCounter instance attempts to open the counter on that computer. If the counter does not exist, setting this property throws an exception.
