  • Syntax errors using dumpel.exe

    I wish to use dumpel.exe to specifically create a dump file of several of my 2003 servers system event log

    I will be filtering on

    user32 (event id 1074)

    this will help me compile a list of all reboots

    Each time I attempt to run dumpel- I get a application popop
    "Command line option syntax error. Type command /? for help"

    Help only offers 4 switches/ however numerous sites (including microsoft) mention far more.

    Question
    Who can assist me in using dumpel.exe or another method to accomplish the afformentioned task (I am not a scripting genious-- batch files at best)

    thanks in advance

    What is the command your trying to run and do you have permission on the box your trying to run it on?
