Audit Process Creation Event Audit

List Audit Process Creation Events

The Windows event log contains all sorts of information about your Windows devices from login data to errors generated on the computer. By default, Lansweeper will scan all the error events generated by the Windows computer. Additionally, you can enable scanning other event log information. The report below lists specifically all of the events with ID 4688 for the process "zoom.exe" and requires you to enable the scanning of success events. The report allows you to get all the details about the Zoom software creation processes and is the basis for doing software usage monitoring with Lansweeper. You can find more information about this use case in the Pro Tips 46 blog post.

This report requires you to enable success audit event scanning.
You can adjust the software this report focuses on by adjusting "zoom.exe" to the software package you want to monitor.
