Property Value

One of the UninstallAction values that indicates what state to leave the event log in when the EventLog is uninstalled. The default is Remove.


When you install an event log, you can optionally connect it to an existing log. If you do so, you must decide whether the log should return to its pre-installation state, or remain in its current, post-installation state. If you elect to return the event log to its pre-installation state, changes to the event log entries at install time are not restored. You can reset only event log properties that are associated with the EventLogInstaller to their pre-installation values.
