Subject Re: Event description preceeded by text that I want to remove...
Date Fri, 27 Aug 2010 14:20:20 GMT

Hi Paul,

   Yes, I checked. Both myself and the ASPNET users are members of Administrators group. And
also yes, I created the event folder by the writing a batch file that inserts the following
into the registry:

REG ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\myApp /v EventMessageFile
/t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\EventLogMessages.dll

I of course run this before I access the application.

Problem is though I'm still getting the stuff before the message. Any ideas why?

Does the event folder exist on the computer, typically you need to have created it beforehand
as you need administrator rights to do so.

It's fairly easy to write a little console app to create these or bundle the process into
your installation routine

Subject: Event description preceeded by text that I want to remove...

Hi everyone,
 Am wondering can you help me please? I'm successfully writing out to the eventlog using the
log4net framework i.e. usign the appender log4net.Appender.EventLogAppender. To be exact to
a dedicated folder called: myApp
<applicationName value="myApp" />

 The problem is is that in all the events (when I look at them) are preceeded by the following

"The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( myApp ) cannot be found. The local computer
may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from
a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description;
see Help and Support for details."
 After that comes the usefully information like timestamps etc i.e. as dictated by the conversionPattern
tag inside te appender. 
 Does anyone know how to remove the text beginning: "The description..." ???
 I would greatly appreciate any comments/advice/suggestuion that you may be able to offer.
Thanking you,
