Do you have a

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\Applicat +ion\Setup
key?

Where do you find  Setup.evtx in the registry?

Hmmm Eventlog Key (Windows)

    You probably tried those logs as administrator ... maybe you don't have permissions :/
      Viewing EVTX files in Windows XP? says XP is not compatible with the evtx files, use a machine with Vista or better to view them which probably means they're not viewable throug OpenLog and thus Win32::EventLog , so you'll probably have to use EvtQuery cause they're probably xml files

      good luck :)

        The question then is, will Win32::EventLog support this in the foreseeable future or would I have to try my (very inexperienced) hand at implementing it myself? I have yet to succeed in any XS related work even in Linux so I'm not really motivated to try it in Windows :-|

      I've tried running as local "Administrator" and as a domain user who is member of "Domain Admins", which in turn is member of the local "Administrators" group.

      I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of UAC pulling a funny trick on me, but I think the anonymous comment about Viewing EVTX files in Windows XP and EvtQuery sounds like a more promising lead.

    No, I've searched the whole subtree for "Setup" and "Forwarded" and fould only stuff like "VSS Setup"; applications that presumably log their own internal events.
