Re^4: Win32::EventLog searching the wrong logs
in thread Win32::EventLog searching the wrong logs
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.
Time flies when you don't know what you're doing
