The only (quick) workaround I've found is to manually create an appropriate registry key for the "custom" event log before attempting the write process. Basically, if Windows doesn't find a matching custom title, it will default to the "Application" entries.

Create a reg key under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\MyCustomEvents
and see if that works for you.

Thank you Momano, yes it works. :)

Here is the function i wrote:

Func CreateEventLog($sEventLogName)
    RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\"&$sEventLogName)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(262144+16, $TITLE, "Erreur de création de l'EventLog " & $sEventLogName)
        Return False
    EndIf
    Return True
EndFunc

I found some informations on msdn but i don't know how to write it in AutoIt, moreover i don't want to use COM object...

The other way in .NET:

Option Explicit
Option Strict

Imports System
Imports System.Diagnostics
Imports System.Threading

Class MySample
    Public Shared Sub Main()

        If Not EventLog.SourceExists("MySource") Then
            ' Create the source, if it does not already exist.
            ' An event log source should not be created and immediately used.
            ' There is a latency time to enable the source, it should be created
            ' prior to executing the application that uses the source.
            ' Execute this sample a second time to use the new source.
            EventLog.CreateEventSource("MySource", "MyNewLog")
            Console.WriteLine("CreatingEventSource")
            'The source is created.  Exit the application to allow it to be registered.
            Return
        End If

        ' Create an EventLog instance and assign its source.
        Dim myLog As New EventLog()
        myLog.Source = "MySource"

        ' Write an informational entry to the event log.    
        myLog.WriteEntry("Writing to event log.")
    End Sub 'Main 
End Class 'MySample

You are right, i was talking about Custom Windows EventLog, you can access these EventLog doing a right click on My Computer -> Manage -> EventLog. But now it's solved. Thank you anyway.
