I've reviewed and coded many attempts of Event Log writing for a service with no success.

Here's my latest code that doesn't compile error, but doesn't write the the Windows XP "Application" log eiter.

 EventLog eventLog = new EventLog();
            eventLog.Log = "Application";
            eventLog.WriteEntry("Event Log Writing Test!", EventLogEntryType.Error);

You left out event source info.  This works just fine:

string EvtSrc="BoxMonSvc";
string EvtLog="System";
string EvtMsg="BoxMon is still alive";
if (!EventLog.SourceExists(EvtSrc)) EventLog.CreateEventSource(EvtSrc,EvtLog);
EventLog.WriteEntry(EvtSrc,EvtMsg,EventLogEntryType.Information,42);
