I have .evt log files that are collected with other data for analysis. I am building an web app to parse all this data. I am trying to find a way to convert the .evt files to csv or xml, or really any format other than binary. even a program that runs on the server that I could call and pass variables to would work just fine.

I have been trying to do this with powershell and LogParser and have been unsuccesful. It seems those tools only want to allow you to parse/convert the logs from your system or from a remote system that is accessible to the system you are running the tools on. This is not the case for me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
