Let me ask first, How did you created your custom Event Log? Anyway, It worked fine for me. I do it like this:



EventLog.CreateEventSource("Custom Source", "CustomLog");
Logger.Write("A message logged to the custom log.", "General");

 And I set the Properties of the "Formatted EventLog TraceListener" like this:

Log = CustomLog
Source = Custom Source

Because that is the Name and source that used for creating the custom event log.
