Event Log vs Event Channel, Message column content ?

Hi,

Just bought LogFusion to test out (3.1.5). Trying to use the 'Event Log' logic to have an easier way searching through them.

First of: What is the primary difference between opening the Event Log's through 'Event Log' or 'Event Channel' ? I think I found one reference about .NET 2.0 API not supporting all types of Event Log logic. And the .NET 3.x was needed to get all the 'sub-channels'.

If System or Application log. I guess the result should be identical, independent of using 'Event Log' or 'Event Channel' to open it.

Here's my real problem: When I open System or Application log through 'Event Channel', the 'Message' column text is not complete. Looks to take random parts of the whole message text, or nothing. If I use 'Event Log' to open, it looks ok. Easy to see difference by opening two tabs of same Event Log through 'Event Log' and 'Event Channel' side by side.

I am missing something obvious ? I can attach screenshots if needed. But I have tested this on my main machine (Win 8.1 x64), and a clean test VM (Win 7.1 x64). Both give the same behaviour.

Good question! It looks like the Event Channel mode is getting the text for the "Message" column from the Details tab, instead of the text only message on the General tab.

I've added this issue to our list, and I'll be sure to let you know when we've gotten it sorted out

Thanks!

Thx No hurry though. For now Event Log is enough for me. But would be good to get same data in 'Channels' for the future.
