Enable WPP through the Windows Event Log Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    this article states it is possible to show WPP trace messages in Windows Event Viewer. In my driver I have implemented WPP to trace my debug message. Now I want some of the messages (TRACE_LEVEL_WARNING and above) to show up in Windows Event Viewer. I created a manifest and compiled it with the message compiler.

    After registering events with generated function EventRegisterMyDriver() I am able to log custom events like EventWriteSampleEventA(L"Hello world") and to see them in Windows Event Viewer (after registering my manifestfile with wevtutil.exe).

    After adding a debug channel to my manifest file to achieve WPP through Event Viewer, according to the article:


    I double checked the control GUID. It is equal to the GUID I use for my WPP provider. I expected to see my WPP trace messages in Windows Event Viewer but I do not see any of my WPP messages. What am I missing?
