Cause: Window operating system is not able to find the path of file EventLogMessages.dll

Solution:

Step 1:  Go to Start -> Run and write regedit and click on OK button in your window operating system.

Step 2: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> ControlSet001 -> Services -> EventLog

Step3: Choose your Eventlog name and expand it.

Step 4: Choose one by one each sub Eventlog and double click on EventMessageFile in right window

Step 5: Write down the correct file name and path of EventLogMessages.dll file in the value data text field.
For example: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\EventLogMessages.dll

Note:  In general location of EventLogMessages.dll is C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

If it is not present there then search it in C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework folder.

Step 6: Press OK button and re open the event viewer.
