How do I see the EventLog Sources on Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Visual Studio I first get an array of all event logs, but for each log in the array

    System.Diagnostics.

    EventLog[] eventLog

    The Source attribute is blank string.

    So I checked the registry entry for that log, and it definitely has two sub entries as event sources, but in the eventlog registry key itself I only see

    (Default)

    AutoBackupLogFiles

    MaxSize

    But when I checked a Windows XP machine I was able to see all sources, the registry entry for the log in Windows XP has

    (Default)

    AutoBackupLogFiles

    File

    MaxSize

    Retention

    Sources

    Why is it different?  How do I see the Sources in Windows 7?
