Events are being logged to the "Application" log instead of custom log

P: 1
Hi Pros,

I have a weird problem here. I am logging from my .NET app to a custom log, but unfortunately, the events are redirected to the Application log. I am sure that I am specifying the log name and the source name accurately. I am using some code like the following:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. EventLog ev = new EventLog(myLog);
  3.             if (EventLog.SourceExists(mySource))
  4.             {
  5.                 if (EventLog.LogNameFromSourceName(mySource) != myLog)
  6.                 {
  7.                     EventLog.DeleteEventSource(mySource);
  8.                     EventLog.CreateEventSource(mySource, myLog);
  9.                 }
  10.             }
  11.             else
  12.             {
  14.                 EventLog.CreateEventSource(mySource, myLog);
  15.             }
  16.             ev.Source = mySource;
  18.             ev.WriteEntry(message, EventLogEntryType.Error);
