Failed to write to event log

Post by daveb500 » Tue Dec 17, 2013 6:43 pm

Whenever I get an error in the Scheduler log, I also get the following :

Failed to write to event log: Cannot open log for source 'ArgusTV'. You may not have write access.

It doesn't seem to be referring to the log files because this error is in the log file. Is it the Windows Event Logs? And what would stop me having access?

It's on a Windows 7 PC with Argus 2.2

Are you running the Scheduler service under a custom account? And if so, does this account have local administrator rights?
