SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You run a tool that uses Microsoft SQL Server performance counters to collect performance data for an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2005. For example, you run System Monitor together with SQL Server performance counters. You start the tool before you start the instance of SQL Server. In this scenario, the performance data is not updated after you start the instance of SQL Server. Additionally, the tool displays static performance data instead of displaying the actual real-time performance data from the instance of SQL Server. This problem occurs until you restart the tool.

CAUSE

The tool calls the Sqlctr90.dll file to access the SQL Server performance counters. This DLL works in static mode or in server interaction mode. In static mode, the DLL cannot communicate with SQL Server. The DLL can communicate with SQL Server only in server interaction mode. However, the DLL cannot switch from static mode to server interaction mode after the Sqlctr90.dll file is loaded.
