; Demonstrates StdoutRead()
#include <Constants.au3>

$foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & @SystemDir & "\CSCRIPT.EXE  EVENTQUERY.VBS", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

While 1
    $line = StdoutRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)
Wend

While 1
    $line = StderrRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "STDERR read:", $line)
Wend

MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Exiting...")

Also have a look at 'eventcreate' and 'eventtriggers' scripts that are standard in XP Pro.

You can also use WMI ...

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate,(Backup, Security)}!\\"&$computername&"\root\cimv2")

for $logname in $objWMIService.InstancesOf("Win32_NTEventLogFile")

$currenteventlog = $destinationpath & "\"& $logname.LogfileName & ".evt"

$retcode = $logname.BackupEventLog($currenteventlog)

While $retcode <> 0

if $retcode == 183 Then

if MsgBox(262196,"Event Log Backup","File: " & $currenteventlog & " already exists. Do you wish to replace it?") == 6 Then

if FileDelete ($currenteventlog) == 0 Then

Return -1

Else

$retcode = $logname.BackupEventLog($currenteventlog)

EndIf

Else

Return -1

EndIf

elseif $retcode == 5 Then

MsgBox(262160,"Event Log Backup","Unable to backup " & $logname.LogfileName & " Event Log due to insufficient permissions")

Return -1

EndIf

WEnd

Next
