Anatomy of a Vista/Server 2008 event
There are three types of Vista/Server 2008 events which are written to various channels in the event log.
1. The ‘pure’ Vista/Server 2008 event
These events are logged using the new Vista/Server 2008 APIs which means they were written specifically for this platform. As such most of these events are not backwards compatible with events from a similar application on downlevel platforms. These events are mostly written to a channel under the “Applications and Services Logs” in the event viewer, though a few creep into the “Windows Logs”.
