To use Windows NT 4.0 version of Performance Monitor settings files
At a command prompt, type
where file_name is the name of the settings file you want to use.
This procedure will open a Windows Performance console configured with the settings from the Windows NT 4.0 version of Performance Monitor settings file.
This procedure works for the following types of Windows NT 4.0 version of Performance Monitor settings files: chart (.pmc), report (.pmr), alert (.pma), and log (.pml). Workspace (.pmw) files that were created with Windows NT 4.0 version of Performance Monitor are not fully compatible with System Monitor. Only one of the views previously saved in the workspace will be available in System Monitor.
To display the Windows NT 4.0 settings file in System Monitor, the system temporarily converts the file for use with System Monitor but discards the converted version after the console starts. If you want to save the settings file for permanent use with System Monitor, type the following command:
perfmon.exe /HTMLFILE:converted_file settings_file
where converted_file is the name you are giving to the converted file and settings_file is the name of the original Windows NT 4.0 settings file.
