How can i add events to the application eventlog using a .cmd file running in cmd.exe .
I scheduled a .cmd file to run at specific times but i'd like to be able to verify that the commandfile started because on the first line of the .cmd file i will run a command putting some text in the evenlog. Are there any tools for this ?

The Resource Kit(s) contain LOGEVENT.EXE which allows a batch job (or command line) to log events to the Application Event Log.


Usage:

     LOGEVENT [-m \\MACHINENAME] [-s SIWEF] [-c CategoryNumber] "Event Text"
