Don't see Application Name listed in Performance Counter Window


I am trying to add custom counters for tested application; however, when I get to the Counter Window as shown in the attached picture, my app name is not shown in the list.


I open Taks Manager and see my app in there.

Please give me some ideas? Thanks.


I am using windows 10.

  • Rebooted the system one more time, and the problem solved.


    Now I can see my app name listed in the Performance Counter even the app is not running yet...

    Anyway, I will close this issue.

    Might be a silly question, but was your application running when you start to create the counter?


    From the documentation: 

    Note: If your application is not running at the moment of counter creation, close the wizard, launch the application and repeat the procedure from the beginning.

      Yes, my application is running when trying to add counters for it.


      I can see my application in Task Manager window, but not in the Performance Counter.

        The first step of selecting the performance counter is selecting the host.  Are you certain that you selected the proper machine/host name in the wizard?
