NT: About event log's maximum string length

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi!All,

My driver wants to write some message to NT's event log.
And I specify 4 variants(%2...%3...%4...%5 ) of string in my MC file.
But if the total string length(%2+%3+%4+%5 ) is over 49, my driver will fail to call
"IoAllocateErrorLogEntry".
Is it possible to make driver write more characters to event log?

Thank you in advance!
Best Regards

    I don't mean to be flippant, but it's obvious that you have not read the
    documentation. The maximum size of an event log entry is 256. This 256
    includes the mandatory header, dump areas and strings that you may use to
    describe the error.
