Windows 7: Creating an Event Log

Creating an Event Log

I have a custom application that needs its own event log. "My App" for example. The application cannot create the event log, so I need to create it so that it will work.

In the computer manager window, I do not see an option any more for creating event logs. What do I do?

Thnx

We need to know more about your app, and your computer.

this has my solution.

installutil.exe installing windows service

Basically, need to run the script with the "as administrator" option. I could only make it work from File Explorer. I couldn't figure out command line runas for W7.
