    How can i get windows events app and events system logs ?


    It should be two files text files one for apps events and one for the system events.
    This is an example about how the format of the text files and what content should be inside:


    Event[0]:
    Log Name: Application
    Source: ESENT
    Date: 2013-02-25T03:18:39.000
    Event ID: 105
    Task: General
    Level: Information
    Opcode: Info
    Keyword: Classic
    User: N/A
    User Name: N/A
    Computer: Chocolade
    Description:
    msiexec (48672) Instance: The database engine started a new instance (0). (Time=0 seconds)

    Internal Timing Sequence: [1] 0.000, [2] 0.000, [3] 0.063, [4] 0.031, [5] 0.000, [6] 0.000, [7] 0.000, [8] 0.000, [9] 0.000, [10] 0.000.


    Event[1]:
    Log Name: Application
    Source: ESENT
    Date: 2013-02-25T03:18:39.000
    Event ID: 326
    Task: General
    Level: Information
    Opcode: Info
    Keyword: Classic
    User: N/A
    User Name: N/A
    Computer: Chocolade
    Description:
    msiexec (48672) Instance: The database engine attached a database (1, C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\PackageRepository.edb). (Time=0 seconds)

    I have two text files with it which i didn't create but i want to create or if the files are exist somewhere in windows directories then just copy the files.
    If not exist then make a bat(batch) file that will create/copy the files for me.

    I just attached to this thread the two files the eventsys and eventapp so you can see how the files is format and what content there is inside. I want to make a bat file that will create this files automatic when i run the bat file or if the files exist already then a bat file that will copy the files automatic to another location.


    BUT ! i cant find this files or similar files with this content any where on my hard disk.

    What are you trying to accomplish? Can you identify some specific issue you are having that might be directly associated with these event logs? BTW, the logs you posted in your description appear to just be informational logs.

    I know they are just informational logs. I need them not to identify a problem at this moment but to a program im doing that will help much easier to collect all files/logs need later to identify problems.

    So when someone else will use my program this files also will be part of the zip/rar file with all
    informational files.

    OK, I dont see where the logs are identifying any problem. It just looks like a connection notification. As for your response, I don't quite understand it so good luck and hang in there because someone may try to help you with whatever issue you perceive you are having. Good luck.

    Pardon me for butting in here, but I think chocolade wants to know the command line for saving the event viewer logs in a text format (so they can include it in a program that they are writing). It's what the data collection app for BSOD's does with the EventApp.txt and EventSys.txt files.

    I'd suggest asking Captain Jack or Brink
