|MyEventViewer is a simple alternative to the standard event viewer of Windows. As opposed to Windows event viewer, MyEventViewer allows you to watch multiple event logs in one list, as well as the event description and data are displayed in the main window, instead of opening a new one. Also, with MyEventViewer you can easily select multiple event items and then save them to HTML/Text/XML file, or copy them to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then paste them into Excel.
This utility works on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server, Windows Vista, Windows 7/2008, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

How to Create Your Own Windows Event Log Notification System
Added 'Choose Data Source' option (F7), which allows you to view the events from a remote computer (In previous versions, you could only do it with /remote command-line option)
Fixed bug: MyEventViewer failed to display a check sign for 'Show Advanced Filter Window On Start' option when it was turned on.
Fixed MyEventViewer to display error message when it fails to load external file with /LoadFiles command-line option.
Fixed bug: MyEventViewer failed to remember the last size/position of the main window if it was not located in the primary monitor.
Fixed bug: The combination of /EventLogNames and the save command-line options failed to work properly.
Added secondary sorting support: You can now get a secondary sorting, by holding down the shift key while clicking the column header. Be aware that you only have to hold down the shift key when clicking the second/third/fourth column. To sort the first column you should not hold down the Shift key.
Added option to hide events with specific users (In 'Advanced Filter' window)
Fixed to display date/time properly according to daylight saving time settings.
Added 'Copy Lower Pane Text' option (Ctrl+L), which always copies the text from the lower pane, even when the upper pane is in focus.
Fixed the save command-line options to filter the events according to the current configuration.
Added /cfg command-line option, which instructs MyEventViewer to use a config file in another location instead if the default config file, for example:
MyEventViewer.exe /cfg "%AppData%\MyEventViewer.cfg"
The lower pane now displays the event strings list if it fails to get the full message string from the event log dll.
Added 'Event Description Display Mode' option - Full Text or Strings List. If 'Strings List' option is selected, the lower pane displays the strings list stored in the event record instead of the full description text containing these strings.
Added option to display only the events with specific users (In 'Advanced Filter' window)
Added 'Auto Scroll On New Event' option.
Fixed the flickering occurred while scrolling the events list.
Added 'Mark Odd/Even Rows' option, under the View menu. When it's turned on, the odd and even rows are displayed in different color, to make it easier to read a single line.
Sorting by event time: If the date/time of multiple events is identical, MyEventViewer now sorts the list by the log type, and then by the record number (In previous versions, the sorting of events with the same time was random)
Fixed issue: The properties and the 'Advanced Options' windows opened in the wrong monitor, on multi-monitors system.
Added Stop menu item, which allows you to stop the loading process of the events log.
Fixed the tab order of the 'Advanced Options' dialog-box.
Added /SaveDirect command line option, for using with the other save command-line options (/scomma, /stab, /sxml, and so on...)
When you use the SaveDirect mode, the event log lines are saved directly to the disk, without loading them into the memory first. This means that you can save a list with large amount of event log lines into your disk without any memory problem, as long as you have enough disk space to store the saved file. The drawback of this mode: You cannot sort the log lines according to the column you choose with /sort command-line option.
Added /VisibleEventTypes command-line option, which allows you to specify the event types you wish to load.
Added /EventLogNames command-line option, which allows you to specify the event log names you wish to load.
Added 'Start As Hidden' option. When this option and 'Put Icon On Tray' option are turned on, the main window of MyEventViewer will be invisible on start.
Added accelerator keys to the event type filter (Ctrl+1 - Ctrl+5)
Added option to filter by Event ID.
Added new option: 'Show Advanced Filter Window On Start'.
Added 'Tray Balloon Event Type Filter' option (Under the Options menu), which allows you to choose for which event types the tray balloon will be displayed.
Added option to load only the last xx events from every event log. (In the 'Advanced Filter' window)
