Write to Windows Event Log from application log file

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have an application that writes an error to log file and I write the error to windows event log manually. I wonder if I can use AutoIt script to specify the location of the error file in the script and the script reads the error file content and write to windows event log automatically.

This is what I have so far:

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

strCommand = "eventcreate /T Error /ID 100 /L CP-Link /D " & _

Chr(34) & "Cannot connect to unit." & Chr(34)

WshShell.Run strcommand

Any help/suggestion is highly appreciated.

With AutoIt you can use:

$SystemEvent='eventcreate /T Error /ID 999 /L SYSTEM /SO AutoItScript /D "A Event Created with AutoIt "'

Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $SystemEvent, "", @SW_HIDE)

Be careful with the OS Language

Entry Application is in German ANWENDUNG

tested with windows XP

good luck for your script :lmao:
