Interacting with the Windows Registry and Application Event Log

In addition to the Windows desktop, Start menu, Quick Launch toolbar, printers, disk drives, files, and folders, you can create JScripts that interact with and control other Windows resources. These other resources include the Windows registry and the Windows application event log.

The Windows application event log is one of a collection of log files maintained by Windows operating systems. As Windows applications run, they record event messages in the log that provide a record of their activities. In addition, applications usually record error messages in the Windows application event log. You can modify your JScripts to write information to this log as well, especially error messages.
