BUG #: 54939 (SQLBUG_70)
If SQL Server is installed on a computer, adding a performance counter in the Performance Monitor while SQL Server is not running generates the following events in the Event Log:
Event ID: 1008
The Open Procedure for service "MSSQLServer" in DLL "SQLCTR70.DLL" failed. Performance data for this service will not be available. Status code returned is DWORD 0.
Event ID: 1001
The description for Event ID ( 1001 ) in Source ( SQLCTR70 ) could not be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): SQL Performance DLL Open function failed.
NOTE: The counter that you add does not need to be a SQL Server counter. The default Processor\% Processor Time counter logs the events.
Event ID: 1001
The description for Event ID ( SQLCTR70 ) could not be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): Unable to open shared memory segment.
The events can safely be ignored.
