CompatibilityCompatible - no manual interaction needed

It is no longer required to set a performance counter id in the check_mk.ini file

check_mk.ini
[winperf]
counters = 10332:msx_queues

You can now use the counter name instead

check_mk.ini
[winperf]
counters = MSExchangeTransport Queues:msx_queues

Note: Keep in mind that this name depends on you system language.
If available, the windows agent tries to find the counter name in the registry key.
SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\Perflib\\CurrentLanguage

If this key is missing, the english language key is used as fallback
SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\Perflib\\009
