Is there anything special that needs to be done to post to the Windows Applicationevent log? Using some boilerplate code that doesn't get any error, but not seeing anything in the log.
I had to set up the policy.txt file to allow file access and to run an external application, but didn't see anything in the docs about event log access.
Actually, I was mistaken; it is getting access denied.
code below. The handle returned from OpenEventLog is NULL and GetLastError returns 5, which is access denied.
This is an Acrobat Developer forum. Are you running this code from within an Acrobat Plug-in?
If not, then you are in the wrong place.
yes, I am. That's why I mentioned the policy.txt file and that's why I posted in this forum.
Did you ensure Acrobat is not in Protected Mode?
Did you create a broker? Because if you are talking about a policy config for broker whitelist, then the file name is "ProtectedModeWhitelistConfig.txt"
As I said, I have running an EXE and using files working fine using the policy, so I obvioulsy know about that. And the docs I was referring to that make no mention of the event log are exactly what you are pointing to; some information that says nothing about what I am asking.
Well, you are a bundle of joy 🙂
You know, in order to provide help, its helpful to know what someone is going on about first. I have no idea what you are doing, what documentation you've looked at, what you've already tried, or where exactly the code you've posted is located. I only know what you've posted, and there isn't a lot of info there.
Oh, and what EXE are you talking about? Plug-ins are DLLs with a .api extension? Are you sure you're working on an Acrobat plug-in?
I asked in the Acrobat SDK forum about posting to the event log using C++ in WIndows (in title), mentioned that I am already using the policy file wth success but the docs have nothing about the event log. Sorry if I get a little testy when someoen then asks if I am using the SDK as if I just randomly picked this forum, then tells me about policy and refers me to the docs after I mentioned using it and that the docs said nothing about the event log.
The code posted is run in a plug in pas teh function a string and a boolean as to wether or not it it is an error and it posts to the event log in other applications where it is used. But it fails in Acrobat.
I mentioned using the policy.txt file to give me privileges to run and EXE and access files. The only thing this has to do with this is clarify that i am successfully using the policy.txt file for other uses.
Yes, plug-ins are DLLs with an API extension. If you have to ask that, you are a bit unqualified to be answering questions about the SDK.
Good Luck with all the assumptions! I'm just not very good with reading minds and vague questions.
