Error When Writing to Event Viewer in VB

Hi everyone,

I'm writing a basic VB application which, when it catches an error, will write to the event viewer.  I am encountering this message during this process:

 Application Screen Shot
Here is my portions of my code that deal with this process:

        Dim oLog As New EventLog
        oLog.Source = "Tax Import"
        oLog.Log = "Application"

oLog.WriteEntry(Now & " " & row("CallID") & " - Exceeded 7 tax details", EventLogEntryType.Warning)

I am an administrator on this box (Windows Server 2008).  I am using MS Visual Studio 2008.

Thanks in advance for any help,

The error refers to the Source you are setting for the Log and the fact that it is not registered as a valid source.
