    Event Viewer Export

    I am looking for a software app or tool to allow me to Export the details from the Event Viewer section. I need to be able to Export or in some manor pull all the Event log Details so I can E-mail them to a Vendor for support. The built in Export feature only Export a list of the events, But I also need to be able to Export the details of each event. By detail I mean the information displayed in the pop-up window you see when you look at the details for any Event.

    Instead of "Export List", try "Save Log File As..." .

    See Event Log Explorer - Windows event log management, security, system analyzer, archiver, report, backup tools - FSPro Labs. From the same page:

    "Main features and benefits of Event Log Explorer at glance:

    Multiple-document or tabbed-document user interface depending on user preferences

    Favorites computers and their logs are grouped into a tree
    Manual and automatic backup of event logs
    Event descriptions and binary data are in the log window
    Advanced filtering by any criteria including event description text
    Quick Filter feature allows you to filter event log in a couple of mouse clicks
    Log loading options to pre-filter event logs
    Fast navigation between events with bookmarks
    Compatibility with well-known event knowledgebases (EventID.com and Microsoft knowledgebase)
    Print and export to different formats.

    <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> for personal use. Fairly inexpensive for other uses. From Order - Event Log Explorer - FSPro Labs:

    "Personal license
