If the "OpenProcedureWaitTime" value is present in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib registry, perflib sets up a timeout procedure internally. If the "Open" function of a Performance Monitor Extension DLL does not return within the time specified, in milliseconds, in this registry value an event (2002) is posted to the Event Log. However, it only controls the reporting of the fact, it doesn't control the behavior. For example, if an Open function "hangs" then the Performance Monitor process will "hang" regardless of the presence of this registry value.

As per Microsoft: "The performance counter provider could not return performance counter data within the specified open timeout period. Either there is a problem with this performance counter provider or the service it is collecting data from, or the system was too busy when this call was made". See MSW2KDB
