in reply to Writing to Event Log (Security)

Do you know if you (your program) has permissions to write to the Security event log? This article seems to indicate that the default is that you would not. In fact, if I read that article correctly, you will not be able to use the regular event APIs (what Win32::EventLog uses) to write to the Security event log at all on XP/2003 and higher, regardless of permissions.
