Event log property doesn't retain setting changes..

P: n/a

Hi,
I created a new event log source and log and user WriteEntry to enter the
log as follows:

' Create the source, if it does not already exist.
If Not EventLog.SourceExists("MySource") Then
EventLog.CreateEventSource("MySource", "MyNewLog")
End If

' Create an EventLog instance and assign its source.
Dim myLog As New EventLog()
myLog.Source = "MySource"

' Write an informational entry to the event log.
myLog.WriteEntry("Writing to event log.")

When I "Right Click" the log and change the property and close, it doesn't
retain the change. For example; If I change the Log size property from
"Overwrite in 7 days" to "Overwrite events when needed", it changes back to
"Overwrite in 7 days." etc..
Am I doing something wrong in the code..

Thanks in advance,
KC

I thought, I would reply to this myself . Unless, any one of you have found
other wise, Turns out, you need to change the "maximum log size" setting as
well when you change the "overwrite" property. If you do so, it will retain
the changes. But, if you just change the "overwrite" options, it doesn't
retain it. This is only TRUE if you create your own "source" and "log".
