    Event Viewer - Event Log Online Help


    Hi,

    I am new to the forum and have searched to see if I can find a fix for my issue.

    My issue is whenever I use the Event Log Online Help link in any Event Notification all I get is transferred to this page Page Not Found

    I am new to Windows 8 but I used this service regularly with XP. I don't know if it is a set up issue or if the help is not available for Windows 8 ... I hope the latter is not the case as I am trying to resolve a completely different issue.

    Any assistance would be great!

    Well, I am still trying to get the Event Log Online Help link in Event Viewer working!

    Could someone tell me what their data values are in the following registry entries:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EventViewer\MicrosoftRedirectionProgram
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EventViewer\MicrosoftRedirectionProgramCommandLineParameters

    My data entries are blank and I am sure there should be something .

    Thanks

    Mmmmmm

    Thanks for the reply Tonschuh, that's exactly the same settings I have!

    Do to see any additional information when you click on the Online Help Link in Event Viewer or do you go to the Page Not Found?

    Thanks

    For me not even the browser get's started, as I get an error that the class is not registered.

    If I type the link from the registry into my browser, I end up here:

    Still no online help for event log


    I was beginning to think it was only my systems that would not find the page when clicking on the Event Log Online Help at the bottom of an item in the event viewer for Windows 8.1. Regardless of the error or warning, it is never found. I can understand it taking some time to index all of the event codes, but how long is too long?
