The langid is the ASCII representation of the 3-digit hexadecimal language identifier. For example, the U.S. English langid is 009. In a non-English version of Windows NT, counters are stored in both the native language of the system and in English.
The data is stored as MULTI_SZ strings. This data type consists of a list of Unicode strings, each terminated with UNICODE_NULL. The last string is followed by an additional UNICODE_NULL. The strings are listed in pairs. The first string of each pair is the Unicode string of the index, and the second string is the actual name of the index. The Counter data uses only even-numbered indexes, while the Help data has odd-numbered indexes. For example, the Counter data contains the following object and counter name strings.
