SYMPTOMS

WMI performance counter classes that are based on the Performance Monitoring Provider do not work in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. When you use WMI performance counter classes on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you receive the error code 0x80041008 or the error code 0x80041010. Otherwise, you receive null values or incorrect values from the WMI performance counter classes.

CAUSE

Starting from Vista, the Performance Monitoring Provider is deprecated, and it is superseded by the WMIPerfClass Provider and the WMIPerfInst Provider. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
