'param incorrect' error trying to create custom perf category

Ben
hi,

i have this line in a web app to create a custom perf category:

PerformanceCounterCategory.Create(categoryName, categoryDesc,
PerformanceCounterCategoryType.SingleInstance, ccdc);
....it works ok from another web server, but on a particular one it
gives this exception:

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The parameter is incorrect
at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterLib.RegisterF iles(String
arg0, Boolean unregister)
at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterLib.RegisterC ategory(String
categoryName, PerformanceCounterCategoryType categoryType, String
categoryHelp, CounterCreationDataCollection creationData)
at System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounterCategory.Crea te(String
categoryName, String categoryHelp, PerformanceCounterCategoryType
categoryType, CounterCreationDataCollection counterData)
if i try to run the same code on a c# win app on this same server, it
works... just doesn't work from a web app (the app is running under
an administrator user).

anyone encounter this?

thanks!

so just creating a new app pool (with same identity and other
settings) helped resolve the issue....very odd.
