Cannot load Counter Name data… v12


V12 user gets error as follows: Cannot load Counter Name data because an invalid index ” was read from the registry

This occurs when the user is checking out a license.


You need to open the command prompt and run as Administrator:
C:\windows\system32> lodctr /r

If you get error, you can run this:
C:\windows\SysWOW64> lodctr /

You should get a message:
Info: Successfully rebuilt performance counter setting from system backup store

This should solve the issue.
