How to Create the Mosaic Web Windows Event Log Source


This topic is for customers with Mosaic installed on local servers.  Mosaic logs exceptions in the Windows Event Log using event source “Mosaic Web”. These events may be used to help diagnose certain configuration errors, such as an inability to send emails from the application.  This article describes how to create the Mosaic Web event source.



Get a command prompt running as an Administrator on the Mosaic web server. (On Windows Server 2008, run a command prompt as administrator by right-clicking and choosing “Run as Administrator.”)

Change directories to the “bin” directory of the Mosaic web.

Run the following command:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil vci.dll

Mosaic events may now be viewed in the Windows Event Viewer under the “Mosaic Web” source.
