We are currently experiencing some memory problems on one of our windows 2008 servers, so I want to log the processes and their memory use with perfmon as suggested elsewhere on this website, but when I select a logfile as data source I get the following error:

"Data source (MyPathToLogFile) is either invalid or can not be found. System message: The specified log file type has not been installed on this computer."

This seems so trivial I hardly dare to ask this, but google was not much of help this time.

Thanks in advance!

    And what happens if you browse to "YourPathToLogFile"? Commented Apr 5, 2011 at 14:09
  • Perfmon asks where the logfile is located. After I browse to where the file is located and select the file, it gives me this message. Doesn't really matter what kind of log file type I choose (csv, blg, tsv), I keep getting it. Commented Apr 6, 2011 at 7:32
