Remote Support provides a custom Event Log view with many enhancements over the standard Windows Event Viewer. Remote Support's Event Log view displays a total count of all entries in the list and then dynamically loads a number of entries at a time. It then loads the remaining entries and updates the appropriate counter(s) with the number of entries read in a lower priority thread. Specify the maximum number of log entries the Remote Support retrieves in the Event Log tab of the DameWare Remote Support Properties window. For additional information, see Event Log tab.

Use Remote Support's Event Log view to view and manage the Application, Security, and System Event Logs on remote systems. Switch between event logs by selecting the corresponding tab from the top of the Event Log view.

The following icons illustrate the type of event in the far-left column:

Windows stores the event logs in the following default locations:

  • Application Event Log: %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\AppEvent.Evt

  • System Event Log: %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\SysEvent.Evt

  • Security Event Log: %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\SecEvent.Evt
