"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could try to use WEVTUtil to convert the EVT into an EVTX file.

If you still have issues with the EVT file, you may need to look at using the FixEVT tool.
