You do not necessarily need a resource DLL, in my NT services I compile in a one-line string resource, and set key EventMessageFile to my application EXE path, also key TypesSupported to "7" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Application\MyApplication It's probably similar when GUI applications shall write to the eventlog w/o an extra DLL? > > Angus -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
