Using traceplus/win32 from http://www.sstinc.com, I see that the
registry accesses in question are

Sequence	Return Value	Function Summary	Process	Thread	Time
205	0	RegOpenKeyExA( HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,"software\microsoft\windows
nt\currentversion\perflib\009",0,KEY_QUERY_VALUE | KEY_ENUMERATE_SUB_KEYS |
KEY_NOTIFY,0x0013C304 )	vs60wiz (3556)	0x92C	15:00:07.688653
206	0	RegQueryValueExA(
0x80000050,"Counters",0x00000000,0x0013C310,0x00000000,0x0013C300 )	vs60wiz
(3556)	0x92C	15:00:07.690028
207	0	RegQueryValueExA(
0x80000050,"Counters",0x00000000,0x0013C310,0x01879060,0x0013C300 )	vs60wiz
(3556)	0x92C	15:00:07.694608
208	0	RegQueryValueExA(
HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA,"230",0x00000000,0x0013C310,0x018911F0,0x0013C300 )
vs60wiz (3556)	0x92C	15:00:07.711996

I don't quite follow all that (what came back from the Counters query, say?),
but it seems like we only need to support a tiny bit of this interface
to make this installer happy.
According to http://www.microsoft.com/msj/archive/S271.aspx, 230
is the list of running processes.  So it looks like the installer
is doing something quite reasonable - maybe looking for another
instance of itself, or something.
