(I'm a newbee on c#)

Hello,

A have mom installed and for debug process I wrote a small oo application to raise an alert on operating system. Attached the exe (framework 2.0)

The implementation is :

EventLog myEvent = new EventLog(sLog, System.Environment.MachineName, sSource);
myEvent.WriteEntry(sEvent, EventLogEntryType.Information, iErrNr);

The conclusions are :

- If I create a new source and raise event on that source than is clean.
- If I raise at existing source, the event has "trash" on description, not sure but in principle it is by design, its a microsoft protection to protect someone to raise a alert as if was a specific application.

Is there any way to raise an alert for an existing source without that "trash"?

RaiseEvent.exe

I raised the event 27 in source Oulook with text "Hello world"

I got  :

The description for Event ID ( 27 ) in Source ( Outlook ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Hello world !.

That's not trash.... that's perfectly normal.

Take a look at the following article... it explains that if the event source does not contain a registry entry for the decriptions, then you'd get the message as you've decribed.

Quite frankly, if it were me, I'd ignore this and move on...
