I saved a event log (16MB) in Windows 2003. When i open the saved log in my Windows 7's Event Viewer , i got this error.

"Event Viewer cannot open the event log or custom view. Verify that the Event Log service is running. The data is invalid (13)."

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.
