Are you able to open the performance counter log in Performance Monitor? If yes, then please send me your counter log and I'll debug this. My email address is Thank you.

I'm receiving the same error message when attempting to generate the HTML report on a disk counter.  I am able to open the counter log in PerfMon.

Were you able to resolve the issue?  If not I'll send you a copy of my counter log.

I've seen this error happen when only the "_Total" instance is captured in the counter log. PAL specifically excludes the analysis of the _Total instance because it averages all of the disk values and is effectively useless. This leads to confusion of when you have collected disk counters (only the _Total instance) yet PAL is unable to produce results. Try collection all counter instances "\LogicalDisk(*)\*" in the counter log and try again.

I'm getting the same error. I'm sure it is something wrong with my counter file. I've posted an issue with tracker number 20743.
