About NTSyslog[edit]

This program runs as a service under Windows NT based operating systems. It formats all System, Security, and Application events into a single line and sends them to a syslog(3) host.

Get the msi installer at the project's sourceforge download page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ntsyslog/files/
