In order to see the MainBoss Service event log, various conditions have to be met (as explained in The MainBoss Service Event Log). You can test these conditions as follows:

  1. Click on the Windows Start button.
  2. Right-click My Computer (Windows XP and Server 2003) or Computer (Windows 7, Vista and Server 2008).
  3. In the resulting menu, click Manage.
  4. In the left-hand panel of the resulting window, right-click Computer Management (Local).
  5. In the resulting menu, click Connect to another computer.
  6. In the resulting window, fill in "Another computer" with the name of the computer where MainBoss Service is installed.
  7. Click OK.

If this works (i.e. if you don't get an error message and you can see useful information in the next screen), then you have appropriate permissions to see the MainBoss Service event log. The MainBoss Service computer and the computer where you are logged in are both configured to allow the event log to be seen.
