_EventLog__Open for "Setup" appear to read logs for "Application" and vice versa

1 post in this topic

I created a script to "tail" the Windows Event Log (Attached: EventLogTail.au3).  The script will examine the 4 main logs of "Application", "Security", "Setup" and "System".  I also added buttons to generate an Event Reports for the 4 logs.

If a generate (or if an event arrives) for "Application", the count will increase for "Application" log but so will the count for "Setup" although the Event Viewer will only show the entry for "Application".  If I generate (or if an event arrives) for "Setup", the count will increase for "Setup" log but so will the count for "Application" although the Event Viewer will only show the entry for "Application".

Currently running version 3.3.14.2

      I have no problem with "System"

      Any ideas will be appreciated

      #Include <EventLog.au3>

      $file = FileOpen("EventLog3.txt", 2)
      If $file = -1 Then Exit
      $hEventLog = _EventLog__Open ("", "Setup")
      $count = _EventLog__Count($hEventLog)
      For $i = 0 to $count

      $aEvent = _EventLog__Read($hEventLog, True, False)
      If $aEvent[0] <> 'False' then ContinueLoop
      FileWrite($file, "* " &$aEvent[8] & " " & $aEvent[4] & " " & $aEvent[5] &" " & "<Source> " & $aEvent[10] & " " & "<EventID> " & $aEvent[6] &" " & "<Username> " & $aEvent[12] & @CRLF)
      FileWrite($file, "<Description> " & $aEvent[13] & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF)
      Next

      FileClose($file)
