I configured the Event Subscription on two Windows 7 computers and successfuly tested the connection. However, I am unable to collect the events. Here is the error:

Error - Code (0x138C): <f:ProviderFault provider="Event Forwarding Plugin" path="%systemroot%\system32\wevtfwd.dll" xmlns:f="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wbem/wsman/1/wsmanfault"><t:ProviderError xmlns:t="http://schemas.microsoft.com/wbem/wsman/1/windows/EventLog">Windows Event Forward plugin can't read any event from the query since the query returns no active channel. Please check channels in the query and make sure they exist and you have access to them.</t:ProviderError></f:ProviderFault>
