    Hi everyone,

    is it possible to avoid using the localized names for performance counters with Get-Counter?
    I am using pester for some OVF checks but pester can't handle special characters (like an Umlaut) which are used in perf counter names on my German system.

    Unfortunately the OS, not PowerShell, decides what to call the performance counters.

    You may be able to insert them as unicode escape sequences if you look up the Unicode character codes.
