API: Report an event > description?
Posted on 1998-06-04
To report an event in the event viewer, I use the ReportEvent function in the advapi32.dll from VB5. Everything looks fine (Source, ...) except the description of this event where I get: "The description for Event ID ( 1 ) in Source ( MY APP ) could not be found". I know that I have to use a resource file with the EventId and the string to display, but I don't know how to create it (I made one in VC++, and incorporated in my VB project unsuccessfully). So, the question is: how to create this resource file, how to compile it, and how to set it up in my project?
