Event Log forwarder and Windows 10


I am in the process of updating 4 computers in my house to Windows 10. I am able to install the Event Log Forwarder for Windows, now all my syslog server can see are the 2 PCs that are still Win 7.

I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue, or any ideas.

Thank you,


  • Attn SolarWinds:

    I know that "Event Log Forwarder" is a free download and "Not supported" according to various posts for SW tech support for this product.

    Does "Event Log Forwarder" work in Windows 10?  It works great in my environment for Server 2008, 2012 and WIN7.  I can't get it to work under WIN10.  A Wireshark capture of my only network interface yields no packets going to the defined SYSLOG server.

    I suggest that SW either fix "Event Log Forwarder" or stop claiming it works under WIN10.
