  • This is some sort of Windows permission. You might have better luck on a Windows forum. It looks like permission to read the Windows Security log includes the ability to clear the Security log. So if the Application log works the same way, there might not be a read permission. But I can't find that explicitly stated anywhere, so I might be wrong.
