Is there anything built into Windows 2003 that allows monitoring of Windows Event logs?

I want to get call a program when a specific windows event log event occurs. Is there a way to do this in Windows 2003. In Windows 2012 it is built in.

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
