Functions

func Install

func Install(src, msgFile string, useExpandKey bool, eventsSupported uint32) error

Install modifies PC registry to allow logging with an event source src. It adds all required keys and values to the event log registry key. Install uses msgFile as the event message file. If useExpandKey is true, the event message file is installed as REG_EXPAND_SZ value, otherwise as REG_SZ. Use bitwise of log.Error, log.Warning and log.Info to specify events supported by the new event source.

InstallAsEventCreate is the same as Install, but uses %SystemRoot%\System32\EventCreate.exe as the event message file.
