    I have a 32bit performance counter DLL and I'm trying to collect performance
    data that this DLL publish by PerfMon.
    As I understood the only way is to launch the 32bit perfmon.exe application
    from %windir%\SysWOW64\ and that works fine.
    BUT if I'm using this 32bit perfmon.exe to create "Counter Logs" to write
    the performance data to a log file - I FAIL !
    the reason I fail is because "Counter Logs" uses the "Performance Logs and
    Alerts" service which is a 64bit app!
    Does anyone have any idea how can I launch "Counter Logs" and still use my
    32bit DLL ?
