I am developing an application that creates Windows event logs and writes to them.
However, during development and testing, I created some event logs by mistake, with sources registered to them.
The issue is that only the first 8 characters of the event log name are significant. Now that I have logs with incorrect names, I cannot create the new logs that I need.
Is there any way to totally remove these event logs (and not just clear them)?
I have tried to delete the file
C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs\WrongNamedEventLog.evtx, but with no success.
