Problem with the message property of event log entries

I am reading events from an event log on a remote server. Certain events
will be put in a file or some other form of output. Everything works fine
but I am concerned a potential problem. Reading about how events are
handled, I found that the message property of an event is not recorded but
rather accessed from the source dll file. While testing my code I found that
when accessing the message property of a remote event log the message is
taken from the local dll file rather than the remote computers dll file.
According to the documentation it is possible for these messages to be
different if the dll files are not the same. This poses potential problems
because the message might be incorrect if it is not getting it from the
remote computer. I tested this by restricting permission to relevant
registry information locally, and sure enough my code throws an access
exception reading the registry.
I am trying to find out if there is some way to get the message from the
remote computer or if I can at least count on some events to be standardized
such as the ones in the security log.
I’m not sure if code will help but this example at least shows some of the
classes being used.

EventLog[] remoteEventLogs = EventLog.GetEve ntLogs(server);
foreach(EventLo g log in remoteEventLogs )
foreach (EventLogEntry entry in log)
Console.WriteLi ne(entry.messag e);

The registry keys are located at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACH INE\System\Curr entControlSet\S ervices\Eventlo g
I disabled access to a specific event source of the application log for my
test (using regedt32 not regedit)
The exception is:
System.Security .SecurityExcept ion: Requested registry access is not allowed.
Let me know if more information is needed.

Hi We are trying to debug a problem with services created using py2exe. It seems that these problems have arisen after services were installed and removed a few times. OK, first the actual problem we're seeing.

Hi, I have the following code to raise events when something gets written to the Application log. The problem I'm seeing is when a bunch of entries get written to the log at the same time (or within a couple of seconds of each other). I receive an event for the first entry, but the events for the other entries aren't triggered until another entry is written to the log. System.Diagnostics.EventLog eventLogToMonitor = new

I've been using listboxes for a long time with no problems but I have a weird problem on a page that I can't figure out.... I'm filling a listbox, as usual with a dataset but when the user selects some entries, other entries get returned instead of the one selected. Also, some items in the list don't trigger the SelectedIndexChanged event and this is repeatable - the same items always fail to generate an event. All of this seems to...

For some reason, when I click the X to close my MDI parent form, the action appears to be re-directed to one of the MDI child forms, and the parent remains open. I am then unable to close the application. What should happen, is that the main MDI form should close, taking the child forms with it. There is code to loop through the child forms, remove the controls on each of them, and then close the form, but this code should execute only...

Ok I have a control that is inherited from another class. In the child I put msgbox(me.name) in the load event. What always pops up is the name of the parent class and not the name of the instance of the object. WHY? Also if I can figure this out I'm hoping that I can put this in the load event of the parent and still get it to work.

Please excuse the cross-posting. This question was raised in microsoft.public.dotnet.general but hasn't been answered so I am trying where I can. There are two of us who have the same problem in a service: the Timer::Tick event processor never gets called. We have set the timer interval, enabled it, and started it, but still nothing. In my case, I also have enabled an event handler to detect SessionSwitch, but that never gets...

Hi there, I am building a database that requires cascading lists on a form. I currently have (I may be adding more later) 3 combo boxes on my form - Department, Surname and Forename.

I then have a command button which produces the results of the...

Hi all, Maybe I am just missing something simple here, but I seem to have an issue with a callback function in A97 that is used to fill a Listbox with values. The first time the callback function is used (when the form opens) all runs well and everyone is happy. Then comes the problem - values are added to the recordset (ADO) that the callback function uses to populate the listbox. After the new values are added to the recordset, the...

I have a prgram with a webBrowser control. The user can click on a Linked Reference and the webBrowser control shows that site.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
