NT Event Log messages are sometime empty strings.  If we log on as an administrator, we can see the entire event log message.  Does anyone know why you can only see parts of messages?

Double click and see the following:

The description for Event ID ( 2001 ) in Source ( fepctrs ) could not be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): .

But by looking at the message locally or with an administrator account, the full text message appears.  Are the messages located in the DLLs and not necessarily posted to the event log as text?

where do you look localy?
As far as I understand the messages describing an event must be given by the program. If it does not so you get just the event without description. I do not know where the messages are stored or how they make their way in the eventlog, but it is for sure that normal events (like the timeserver telling you that he adjusted the time) and the corresponding messages are supplied by the programm and not by NT.
