Windows 7: cannot start event viewer "Error code 1899"

cannot start event viewer "Error code 1899"

Hi All,

I've had an issue with Event viewer unable to start due to "endpoint mapper database entry could not be created" Error 1899. I have done a SFC and have had some but not all issues fixed, I have a log of the result and maybe could post if needed. I've also done a system restore to a previous working config but no luck, the problem still persists. Has anyone had experience with this issue and know a fix for it?

Regards

It's no wonder people slag off Microsoft for the lack of support. This issue has effectively stopped me from doing any back up on my PC as without the Event logging service or Event viewer service running the Back up cannot be set as it's dependent on these services which are hog tied by this endpoint mapper issue! Another Windows endless catch 22 loop!!

I can't believe no one has anything to offer on this issue! I've seen this issue raised on several forums but as yet no one seems to have the solution, which begs the question where are all the experts out there specializing in Windows 7? Suddenly, nothing happened!!

It sounds like one or more of the system files may be corrupt; but before we proceed;
Can you post that log before we proceed any further so we can see what errors etc you are getting?

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the rapid reply I've been really frustrated (as is obvious from my rant!) with this, I've attached 2 docs, one the short version with a note at the top of the result from me and the full result which is a lot larger.

Thanks

Hiconic

Considering the number of problems your computer seems to be having, I'd consider a Repair Install. If successful it will fix your currently installed Windows 7 while preserving your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc. You will have to reinstall Windows Updates.

Repair Install

For future consideration, if a Repair Install fixes things (or if you wind up having to do a Clean Install), once the computer is working properly I'd make regularly scheduled System Images using the native Windows 7 imaging tool or the free Macrium Reflect. A system image could return your computer to a fully functioning state in about an hour or less.
