If you write to an event log, you must associate a Source with your event log object to connect it to a particular log. It is not necessary to specify the Source property when only reading from a log. You can specify only the Log name and (server computer name).
You need not specify the if you are connecting to a log. If you do not specify the , the local computer (".") is assumed.
A source can only be registered to one log at a time. If the Source property was set for an instance of EventLog, you cannot change the property for that EventLog without changing the value of Source or calling DeleteEventSource first. If you change the property, the EventLog closes all handles and reattaches to the log and source on the new computer.
The value cannot be an empty string. If it is not explicitly set, it defaults to the local computer (".").
