Cannot write to the Event Log from SharePoint or .NET Application

You may find when working with posting events to the Event Log that they fail - this can happen when using SICG's SharePoint Helper as well as any .NET application you happen to be building.

The problem is that (depending on the system settings), the ASPNET account does not have the correct permissions - to correct:

Open the Registry Editor (regedit), locate the following entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/EventLog

Right click on this and grant the ASPNET account Full Control.
