Problems writing to NT Security Event Log

Hi,

I'm trying to log a formatted event to the Windows NT Security Event Log but
I am having problems.

I can get events into the log, but always unformatted with the data
appearing in the "Data" box and not the "Description" box - not very user
friendly!!

I have no trouble at all in writing to the Windows NT Application Log.

I have registered to add events for the security log in the same vain as
registering for the application log.

Hope someone can help!

Regards,
Craig.

I'm sure they can but you need to ask in a Windows programming group, not a
C++ language group. Try news:comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32 for
instance.
