I ran into this same issue.  It has to do with the performance counters in .NET.  Running a cmd prompt as administrator I ran "lodctr /R" to rebuild the counters.  Worked for me anyway.

Hi,

Do you have installed .NET 4 Extended profile in the computer where the QlikView services are running? Apart from that, is the account running the services member of local groups Administrators and QlikView Administrators?

Hope that helps.

pwhorisky,

right solution.

In fact, looking at the Windows Application Log there where many Warning Events with "Checking Performance Counter Category exists failed. Exception: Cannot load Counter Name data because an invalid index '' was read from the registry."

this fact suggested me your solution would correct the issue and it did.

Thanks.
