Performance Counter complaining


I have created a service, which installer installs 5 performance counters as
well. Then the service instances these counters and interact with them.

If I check the event viewer I receive an error everytime the service starts:
"The requested Performance Counter is not a custom counter, it has to be
initialized as ReadOnly".

All my 5 counters are custom and actually all of them work fine showing the
values. I have been trying to debug if any particular one is complaining but
couldn't find it, if I go step by step no error is shown (I have tried every
single perf counter interaction), but as soon as I press F5 to run it the
event is triggered.

It seems that a bug, not really affecting my app but I am trying to
understand what is wrong with it.

Category Name = "Web Service"
