About Event Log Toolkit

Create custom event sources for logging events into the NT/2000 event log.

The Event Log Toolkit overcomes the generic "VB runtime" event logging, along with its limited descriptions and lack of event categories. With it you can create self-registering, custom event sources that have no dependencies, allowing your application to send events to the Windows NT/2000 event log using an unlimited number of event categories and containing clear descriptions of each event.

Desaware's new Event Log Toolkit makes creation of event sources easy, and provides all the tools needed to create and log custom events. Now your applications and services can support event logs in a professional manner, as recommended by Microsoft.

Consider these great features:

  • Create custom event sources with our easy to use event source editing application
  • Event sources created with this toolkit are self-registering - no more manual register updates
  • Event sources created with this toolkit have zero dependencies - just ship the DLL file
  • Support unlimited languages in each event source
  • Define unlimited custom event categories for easy analysis by event log analysis tools
  • Supports full parameter substitution for messages
  • onstants for event identifiers are automatically exported into a Visual Basic .BAS file
  • Event identifiers may be defined from separate severity, facility and number fields, in the manner recommended by Microsoft. Constants for all fields are also exported to a Visual Basic .BAS file
  • Visual Basic sample code is included to read the event log, report events, backup the event log, and detect changes to the event log
  • No royalties charged for distribution of event sources created with this toolkit
