Windows event filtering not working? Or something else

Hello, I have recently been trying up a syslog-ng server for various devices and have tried a couple of things for sending Windows Events to the server.

Finally decieded that NXLog will do what I need and I have gotten sent some events over without much configuration, but when trying filter within the .conf file, it always fails. I can't really find much good information as to why it might be failing, as it seems that it should be correct.(to me anyway)

input file does not exist


I'm working on monitoring a log file using nxlog. I have the File set to "C:\\Program Files\\test1.log" but it's saying that the "input file does not exist". I tried running a python script to check the file using the os module

import os

test = os.listdir('C:\\Program Files\\test1.log')

This will return an error "FileNotFoundError: The system cannot find the path specified"
