Property Valuetrue to report information in the event log; otherwise, false.
Setting AutoLog to true instructs the service to use the Application event log to report command failures, as well as state change information for Start, Stop, Pause, and Continue events on the service. The name of the service is used as the log's EventLog.Source.
To report information to a custom event log rather than the Application log, set AutoLog to false and write instructions within the command-handling methods OnContinue, OnPause, or OnStop to post to the appropriate log.
The ServiceName, which supplies the source string for the event log, must be set before the service attempts to write to the event log. Trying to access the event log before the source name is set throws an exception.
