  • Question

  • Hello Everyone

    I have a problem poping up in my event logs all the time and it has to do with Application.

    It doesn't say which application, just application. this is how it goes

    The description for Event ID 0 from source Application cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

     

    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

     

    The following information was included with the event:

     

    Value cannot be null.

    Parameter name: key

     

    the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table

    Can anyone help me in determining which application it is so I can get rid of that pesky annoyance.

  • Hi Simpleoldman,

    According to your description, it could be caused by Window operating system is not able to find the path of file EventLogMessages.dll. We could follow the steps in the below to check:

    Step 1:  Go to Start -> Run and write regedit and click on OK button in your window operating system.

    Step 2: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> ControlSet001 -> Services -> EventLog

    Step 3: Choose your Eventlog name and expand it.

    Step 4: Choose one by one each sub Eventlog and double click on EventMessageFile in right window

    Step 5: Write down the correct file name and path of EventLogMessages.dll file in the value data text field.

    For example: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\EventLogMessages.dll

    Note:  In general location of EventLogMessages.dll is C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

    If it is not present there then search it in C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework folder.

    Step 6: Press OK button and re open the event viewer.

    Hope it will be helpful to you

  • Ouch, Sorry Carl.

    I haven't had much time to look at it. As we all know running a business is a full time job in itself. Sense I now know where to start I will look further into it. Thanks

    Simple

    while going through the list I have found a lot of applications that do not have the EventMessageFile parameters installed.

    I have found the file "Application", but it has a value of CatagoryMessageFile. Would that be considered the same as an EventMessageFile?

    Some of the files concern me. Ones like ComPlus, CertC, CertEnrolement, Standard TCP/IP Port

    Are this entries I should be concerned about?
