viewing event logs remotely

All,

using vb.NET on WinXP, I am trying to return the text of the events in
the event logs from various machines on the network (using the event log
class). It works to a degree,
but certain Event sources return text such as the one below.
The message '1073750026' for application 'Fax Service' could not be
formatted using library(ies): ''. The log entry contains the following
replacement strings:'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\MSFax\faxreceive\4ab2325500.tif', '', '', 'Fax',
'8', '0:02:19', 'iNTRA 56k'

anyone got any ideas?

thanks in advance
Nik

You can try to use WMI to query the remote eventlogs.
