Thanks for the reply. Which IDs are talking about? I am actually unable to
get description for all the events. The Event IDs are more or less the same
as used in downlevel clients. For example, The event id 1025.
I had read in some site that the Event Log architecture has changed. Is this
creating problems? I am using the simple SDK Event Logging Functions like,
OpenEventLog, CloseEventLog, ReadEventLog, etc for enumerating the Event on
the Vista Machine. This works fine. But the logic for fetching the
description is failing. As mentioned in the previous posts I am trying to
read the description from the EventMessageFile available through the
registry. I tried to look into the EventMessageFile resource directly using
a resource hacker tool. I could not find any message table (string table)
resource in that dll from where I am trying to fetch the format strings.
This is why the logic is failing.
So now, I am just curious as how Vista is storing the event descriptions.
For example, check out the key
Runtime. In this you'll find a string value
EventMessageFile="C:\Windows\system32\mscoree.dll". Ideally this dll should
have all the resource strings related to the events for the ".NET Runtime"
related events. But in Vista this does not have those resources.
Can you please confirm that Vista does not store the resource strings
anymore in the EventMessageFile? Also, it would be great if you let me know
how could I get these resource strings on Vista.
Thanks & Regards,
