    If an application gives the following error:

    ERROR_LOG_FILE_FULL

    1502 (0x5DE)
    The event log file is full.

    This means that it’s trying to write an error to the Windows Event log (typically the Application Log), but the file is full.

    To fix error 1502, open the Windows Event Viewer, right click the application log (or appropriate log) and go to the properties to increase the size of the event log. You may also wish to enable the Event Log to overwrite old events to ensure you don’t get the ERROR_LOG_FILE_FULL error again. Be aware however, that this will cause you to lose older events, which may be a problem if an application is spamming the event log.
