Control the location of the log file

This policy setting controls the location of the log file. The location of the file must be writable by the Event Log service and should only be accessible to administrators. If you enable this policy setting the Event Log uses the path specified in this policy setting. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting the Event Log uses the system32 or system64 subdirectory.

Additional Information

  1. Registry path is:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Policies -> Microsoft -> Windows -> EventLog -> System # File

  2. The Administrative Template path is:

    Windows Components -> Event Log Service -> System


* Making mistakes while changing registry values can affect your system adversely. We recommend you to create a System Restore point before making registry manipulation. If you're new to Registry Editor, read this beginner's guide.
