Write-EventLog : The source name “” does not exist on computer “”

If you have received this error using Powershell when trying to Write to the Event Log; it’s because you have not registered the source yet

Use the New-EventLog cmdlet to register the source prior to writing to the event log

New-EventLog -LogName Application -Source <Sourcename>
