hi ,any one can help ,me to solve my problem.
i m talking about reading AppEvent.evt SecEvent.evt SysEvent.evt files
which basically resides in C:\WINDOWS\system32\config folder of
windows xp.if we want to open that files and our computer is on n/w
than some services used all three files and i m not able to open that
files manually.if i want to read that files than i have two options
either read by event viewer or copy this file and to another place and
open it in vc++.

how can i read these files?

Do you have a description of the file format used by these files? Otherwise opening them isn't going to do much good.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
