How-to make an EventLog in OnShutdown windows service?

Hello,

does anyone know, how to make an EventLog in service event OnShutdown?

It seems that OnShutdown cannot make an entry to the
eventlog.writeentry(). Even when Eventlog is listed in the service
property DependsOn, still not works.

Any idea? Thank you.

regards,

Klaus

C # / .NET 2.0 / XP Pro SP 3

protected override void OnShutdown()
{
Console.Beep();
base.OnShutdown();
try
{
EventLog.WriteEntry("OnShutdown"); // exception
}
catch { }
Console.Beep();
}
