Hello Brad,

it all depends under which account your app is running - as you can see,
Service Accounts are allowed to write to the Application Log - but not custom
accounts, by default.

But it is true - you cannot create an Event Source as non admin.

Write a little console app the pre-creates it and run it as admin.
