How to create perforations along a curved solid?

What is the best way of creating perforations along a curved solid? The pattern along curve tool does not appear to work. Perhaps I am making some mistake somewhere? Any help would be much appreciated.


I would like to know what is the best way to repeat hole every 14mm along the solid.

    @NeilCooke I make exactly the same for much more quantity of holes I need a perforated Sheetmetal but it need to be bend (see pic under).
    After make such approach regeneration time is 296s :#.
    DO you have some different approach for those type of models?
