I just downloaded the latest version of your free tool Windows Event Log Forwarder and then installed on a Windows 2008 Server with no issues after installing .NET Framework 4.0 but when I try and add a subscription to any event log like Application, System, Security, etc the "Task Category" drop down will not populate, it just gets stuck on "loading ....". I waited over an hour and it still did not populate.
If was able to create a subscription if I chose Microsoft-Windows-Backup logs but it get's stuck on "loading..." the Task Category if I choose any of the Event Logs.
I know some event logs can be big. Mine are set to store 1Gb but it should not take over an hour to populate the "Task Category" section.
This looks like a bug in this version of software.
Is there a workaround or an older version this does not happen with?
