Other Miscellaneous Features

Ease of use

Using the new EventReporter client interface, the product is very easy to setup and customize. We also support full documentation and support for large-scale unattended installations.

Full Windows 2000, 2003, XP and Vista Support

We had full Windows 2000, 2003, XP and Vista support since these products were released! All extended Windows 2000 log information can be gathered, fully decoded and submitted to the log targets. The same applies to custom event logs. EventReporter is also the first log reader to support the new extended Vista event logging system. So in short: whatever your Windows event log needs are – EventReporter can solve them.

Runs on large variety of Windows Systems

This includes NT 3.5(1), 4.0, 2000, 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2008/2012/2016/2019 servers, and Windows 7/8/10. Workstation or Server, 32 or 64 bits – EventReporter runs on all of them. We also have Compaq(Digital) ALPHA processor versions on platforms supporting this processor (engine only, available on request). Please note that the current builds do no longer support older platforms, but we have previous releases available for those that need them (the current software can no longer run on e.g. NT 3.5 platforms, because there are technical issues mostly with the installer).


EventReporter is running in a large number of installations. It is written to perform robustly even under unusual circumstances. Its reliability has been proven at customers’ sites since 1997.

Remote Administration

The client can be used to remotely manage EventReporter instances.

Minimal Resource Usage

EventReporter has no noticeable impact on system resources. It was specifically written with minimal resource usage in mind. In typical scenarios, it’s footprint is barely traceable. This ensures it can also be installed on heavily loaded servers.

Full Windows Event Log Decoding

EventReporter can fully decode all types of Windows event log entries. It has the same capabilities like event viewer.

Windows Service

The log forwarding process “the engine” is implemented as a native multithreaded Windows service. It can be controlled via the control panel services applet, the computer management console and any other means for controling servies.

Double Byte Character Set Support (e. g. Japanese)

EventReporter supports characters encoded in double byte character sets (DBCS). This is mostly used with Asian languages like Japanese or Chinese. All DBCS strings are forwarded correctly to the syslog daemon or email recipient. However, the receiving side must also be able to process DBCS correctly. Adiscon’s syslog daemon for Windows, WinSyslog, does so. The output character encoding is selectable and support Shift-JIS, JIS and EUC-JP for Japanese users.
