Eliminate the URL when using EventLog.WriteEvent

P: n/a
How can I eliminate this URL link which is automatically appended to what I
write to the event log using EventLog.WriteEntry()?

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp"

It makes no sense to refer my user to MS' site!

Thanks,

Hi,

I do not think you can do so, why it does bother you in the first place?
I too agree it's plain useless though.

You can't, it's something that is inserted by the event viewer.

It bothers me because it can only confuse users. Some users are bound to
dutifully click the link and get thrown into a limbo.

Thanks,

I see that other apps are able to write to the event log on this same
machine without this message...

That would seem to indicate it is not in the event viewer...?

Grant,

Are you sure? Every event entry in my event log has that message,
regardless of whether or not it is related to an MS product, or a custom
written product.

It might be that just the big three ("Application", "Security",
"System") insert that. I have no entries in other logs, so I can't say for
sure.

Let's hope that it's elimitated in Vista.

You know, I have never clicked on it , I have no idea where it takes you to
:)

I'm sure.

This is in the application log. Most events have it but those from a PBX
service do not.
