Hi,

I am using C#4.0 and Windows Server 2008

I need to query the Application event log.

I  need to query like this:

Give me all events where Source = "x" and where Created Date >= "my date"

Also the event log may be on a different machine.  

Can anyone help please?

Thanks very much

I would use WMI and execute a query against Win32_NTLogEvent.

Win32_NTLogEvent class
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394226(v=vs.85).aspx

Example query:

Select * from Win32_NTLogEvent Where Logfile  = 'Application' and SourceName like '%Backup%'"
