I want to run a batch file in task scheduler on an event.

This is the event in windows events viewer in xml eventdata

 <System>
  <Provider Name="User32" Guid="{b0aa8734-56f7-41cc-b2f4-de228e98b946}" EventSourceName="User32" /> 
  <EventID Qualifiers="32768">1074</EventID> 
  <Version>0</Version> 
  <Level>4</Level> 
  <Task>0</Task> 
  <Opcode>0</Opcode> 
  <Keywords>0x8080000000000000</Keywords> 
  <TimeCreated SystemTime="2014-09-25T23:21:17.892345300Z" /> 
  <EventRecordID>10427</EventRecordID> 
  <Correlation /> 
  <Execution ProcessID="568" ThreadID="1816" /> 
  <Channel>System</Channel> 
  <Computer>SV1.nortool.local</Computer> 
  <Security UserID="S-1-5-21-3322805290-1362380017-3951582809-1106" /> 
  </System>
- <EventData>
  <Data Name="param1">C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE (SV1)</Data> 
  <Data Name="param2">SV1</Data> 
  <Data Name="param3">Other (Unplanned)</Data> 
  <Data Name="param4">0x5000000</Data> 
  <Data Name="param5">power off</Data> 
  <Data Name="param6" /> 
  <Data Name="param7">NORTOOL\NTAdmin</Data> 
  </EventData>
  </Event>

Open in new window


I want to run the batch file for this event data:
 <EventID Qualifiers="32768">1074</EventID> 
<Data Name="param5">power off</Data> 

Open in new window


When in the task schedule I created the following in the "Edit Event Filter" screen and need to know how to include <Data Name="param5">power off</Data>

<QueryList>
  <Query Id="0" Path="System">
    <Select Path="System">*[System[(EventID=1079)]]</Select>
  </Query>
</QueryList>

Open in new window


This is for a Windows 2012 R2 server

This should do the trick:
<QueryList>
  <Query Id="0" Path="System">
    <Select Path="System">*[System[(EventID=1074)]][EventData[(Data[@Name='param5']='power off')]]</Select>
  </Query>
</QueryList>

Open in new window

which is equivalent to:
<QueryList>
  <Query Id="0" Path="System">
    <Select Path="System">*[System[(EventID=1074)] and EventData[(Data[@Name='param5']='power off')]]</Select>
  </Query>
</QueryList>

Open in new window

So the first one (which for no particular reason is my personal preference) uses 2 consecutive "[ ... ]" selectors which are both applied to * (which always matches the Event node) where the second one uses "... and ..." to do the same.

Here are some more examples: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa385231(VS.85).aspx

In general, it should be possible to use any XPath query selector: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms256086(v=vs.110).aspx

tested in Event Viewer filter:
captureThe events where 'param5' is 'shutdown' or 'restart' are not shown anymore, so seems to work ok ;-)
