Look for ReportEvent in the help system.

In fact it's not too difficult: you must first register a source (creating a key in the registry), then call ReportEvent.

Follow the instructions:

- Make a new Project: ATL COM Appwizard
- Server Type: Service

You can find a CServiceModule:LogEvent function that is waiting for reuse.

Writing to any of the event logs is fairly easy.
Somewhere in the initialisation of your program you need to register a file in the registry which contains your messages.
Then whenever you need to write to the log file, you call ReportEvent()
(I can provide a class in C++ if you need it.)
