[solved] Minuplate Event Viewer Secutrity Log

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to work with windows event viewer security log. I've seen some pro's use dll calls and wmi stuff. Can any of that help me here I wonder?

My ToDo List:

1. Read the event log into a GUICtrlCreateEdit. I know how to get the log there but it appears to be binary stuff :D

2. Save the event log. If I can find out how to save the current event log and select the CSV format then I would be able to solve issue number 1. also.

3. Clear the event log. I'm pretty sure I can do this by just coping the current security log to my archive location. I'll test this once I find out if I can make 1 and 2 happen ;)

I searched for help before I posted this and found the below article.

^ This does what I want but it uses the GUI to click things. I was attempting to make this more of a background process.

I think I was spoiled by Perl as it had some win32 module that would read/write/clear event logs. I was able to parse them. Tally up the events and present a report based on the findings. I'm trying to move away from perl and rewrite it using autoit3.

I should invest in a book or something :\

I really appreciate any help possible.

Respectfully,

Avery

I recommend searching for LogParser. I tool to view and query Event Logs and Logs of other various formats with SQL like syntax. It has a dll with can be used as a com object in AutoIt.

Thank you. I was able to find it very easy. Now back to breaking things until they work ;)
