SymptomsDuring installation of SQLExpress 2005 inside a container I encounter this error:
Performance Monitor Counter Requirement (Error)
* Performance Monitor Counter Requirement
* The System Configuration Check for Performance Monitor counter registry value has failed.
For details, see How to: Increment the Counter Registry Key for Setup in SQL Server 2005, in the readme file or in SQL Server Books Online.
ResolutionRunning the following command (at the command line) in the container solves the problem. The command rebuilds the performance counters.
