[HELP] Windows EventLog read ?

Post by hongpan » Wed, 19 May 2004 15:13:49


I am having a bit a problem in getting information out of the windows system
event log file.

I know how to get information out of the backup file of the event file.
OpenBackupEventLog Opens a handle to a backup event log.
OpenEventLog Opens a handle to an event log.


But I do not know how to get informaiton out of the original event file.

I have tried copying the file and then trying to read it.

Is there a special function for reading the original event file?

Just pass "System", "Security" or "Application" correspondingly as the
second parameter to OpenEventLog
