Subject Re: NTEvenLogAppender.dll - missing event description
Date Fri, 19 Jun 2009 03:59:47 GMT
Did you explicitly register the DLL with regsvr32 or equivalent (like  
an installer program) as administrator?  The DLL does try to register  
itself when used, however that is blocked under Windows Vista by  
default and may be blocked under earlier versions by configuration.
