Collects log data in the same format as the Windows ReportEvent function, and passes it to the Windows machine for logging. A null UserID security ID is given.

BOOLEAN ReportEvent(
    HANDLE hEventLog,
    WORD wType,
    Word wCategory,
    DWORD dwEventID,
    PSID lpUserSid,
    WORD wNumStrings,
    DWORD dwDataSize,
    LPCTSTR* lpStrings,
    LPVOID lpRawData);

Ignored; set to NULL.
Number of insert strings in the array pointed to by the lpStrings parameter. A value of 0 (zero) indicates that no strings exist.
Number of bytes of event-specific raw (binary) data to write to the log. If this parameter is 0 (zero), no event-specific data exists.
Pointer to a buffer that contains an array of null-terminated strings merged into the message before Event Viewer displays the string. This parameter must be a valid pointer (or NULL), even if wNumStrings is 0 (zero).
Pointer to the buffer that contains the binary data. This parameter must be a valid pointer (or NULL), even if the dwDataSize parameter is 0 (zero).

Return Values

Success; the entry was written to the log.
