If I understand correctly, to get this functionality on Windows 2003 I need to install the Windows Support tools. Is that right?

Additionally, is this functionality available on Windows 2008 and Windows 2012?

eventriggers is native content of windows 2003 no installation is needed.
this command is not neccessary on 2008 and newer as it was incorporated into taskmanager which has trigger on event implemented

I was able to find eventtriggers.exe on a system without Windows Support Tools installed.

To use the task manager as described, open the event viewer, right click on the Windows event log entry and select "Attach task to this event..."
