Intel PCM - Starting MSR service failed with error 2
Dear PCM Team,
I use PCM successfully on one computer with two Xeon E5645 CPUs running Windows XP. When I tried to run it on another system with Xeon E5504 CPU, I get the "Starting MSR service failed with error 2", which I believe is a file-not-found error for msr.sys. I have msr.sys in the same directory as pcm.exe the way I use it in my other system. So I don't know why the file could not found. I have administrator prevlideges when I run pcm.exe. Can you help me with this?
Note: I have tried using winring0.dll/winring0.sys as explained in the PCM zip as an alternative to msr.sys. This works except that the computer freezes/hangs after a few minutes. I use PCM in my program and show some measurements in a GUI.
64-bit Windows starting from Win XP will not load drivers which are not signed.PatchGuard protection will kick in and prevent the driver' entry point routine from beign called by the I/O manager.One of the workarounds is trying to use this program called "Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b".
Hope it helps.
