Can I use the old EventLog Monitor with Vista?
Created 2007-04-18 by Florian Riedl.
Windows Vista available since early 2007. Due to the changes Microsoft introduced with Vista,
the procedure for monitoring event logs with the non-Vista event log monitor has
changed. Adiscon introduced the native Vista
EventLog Monitor V2 which
requires no specific prerequisites. Some customers still prefer to use the
previous EventLog Monitor. We recommend against this. However, there may be some
reasons for doing so. If so, you have to go to "Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services". In the list of Windows internal services you have to find the service named "Remote Registry" and start it.
Once the Service is started, you are able to fully use the old EventLog Monitor again, just like if you use Windows XP.
Please keep in mind that only the XP-like subset of event logging is available
via that monitor. To fully process Vista event logs, you need to switch to the
V2 event log monitor.
Customers with further
questions should kindly contact Adiscon support at
