I have released an updated version of my EventLogClearer, bringing it up to version 188.8.131.52. For the original release, see this post.
Improvements made in this version include:
- Fixed a bug where the application acted weird if you ran the log clearing procedure two or more times in a row.
- Added a new mechanism for supplying alternate credentials, instead of only being able to run as the currently logged on user. This applies to both auto-populating the list of computers from AD, and running the event log clearing procedure. If you leave the credentials blank or as the default, "username," the current user will be used.
- Added the ability to clear a ton more Applications and Services logs than before, due to me realizing the potential of the EventLogSession class.
As before, .NET 4.5 is required to run the application. The project was built in Visual Studio 2012.
