Unable to create an Event Log entry

Posted: 04-15-2007, 04:08 AM
I am attempting to make an event log entry, but get the following exception:

System.Security.SecurityException: The source was not found, but some or all
event logs could not be searched.

The code is:
if (!EventLog.SourceExists("VCS 2005 Recipes"))
EventLog.CreateEventSource("VCS 2005 Recipes", "Application");
EventLog.WriteEntry("VCS 2005 Recipes",
"A simple test event.",
new byte[] { 10, 55, 200 }

Any help will be appreciated. TIA
