Report generated blank

Feb 12, 2009 at 1:22 AM
I am very interested in this tool.
I've tried it on our SQL server 2005 on Windows 2003, we collected a full day data based on SQL 2005 threshold file.
Then we run pal to generate the report, but after it spent 1 and half hours processing the data, the xml file is fine, html report is blank, .

The last few lines of the log file looks ok.
Can anyone tell what might be the problem

[12/02/2009 11:07:12 AM] If the report does not automatically display, then look for it in one of your existing Internet Explorer instances or in the PAL Reports directory in your My Documents folder. Note: If you specified a different output directory, then Windows Vista will automatically deny access with no notification to the PAL tool. To get around this, run the PAL tool under elevated privileges.

That looks correct. If the perfmon log is less than 10MB's zipped up, then please email it to me at

Thank you,

If any of you can send me th BLG file that you are working with, then I can help. Otherwise, all I can do is speculate.

Please make sure that you are using an English (US) locale when running PAL.
