OS reports the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table. Event Source: Application Popup Event ID 56 It’s probably because you have a popup that’s happened during an uninstall, and the uninstalled program has it’s own event log additions that are no longer available as it’s been uninstalled. In short, it’s nothing to worry about. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
