How to read Security Logs from Domain Controllers using C#?

I am trying to read Account Management category events of Security Logs using EventLog class, but I can not read the event message. Error message:

"The description for Event ID '565' in Source 'Security' cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display the message, or you may not have permission to access them."

Any suggestion?

Also is it possible to read event log from Domain Controllers in real time using C# (or .Net)...if yes how?

Can you explain in detail? Article KB 842795 is about custom event and I am not dealing with custom events...........

Read that introductory material.

using System.Diagnostics;
static class ShowEventLog
static void Main()
NegotiateStream ns = new NegotiateStream(new System.IO.
EventLog el = new EventLog("Application","");
foreach (EventLogEntry ele in el.Entries)
