Log search working in Windows 7 but not in Windows 10

Windows 7 x64 PSVersion 5.1.1.14409.1018 - below runs with no issues

$cmp = 'localhost'

$time = (Get-Date) - (new-timeSpan -day 2)

$events = Get-WinEvent -cn $cmp -FilterHashtable @{ logname = '*'; level = 1, 2, 3, 4; starttime = $time }

Windows 10 x 64 PSVersion 5.1.16299.1146 - the above won’t run, I am missing something here -

Get-WinEvent : The data is invalid

It appears the filtering can no longer deal with the logname=’*’

Appreciate any pointers

Yup, it doesn’t accept * in Win 7

I have knocked this together - it seems to be doing the trick - I’ll refine and push on - cheers

$cmp=‘localhost’

$time = (Get-Date) - (new-timeSpan -hour 1)

$Events=Get-WinEvent -filterhashtable @{Logname = ($LogName=(Get-WinEvent -ListLog * -ComputerName $cmp| where {$_.recordcount -gt 0} | Select-Object -ExpandProperty LogName)); starttime = $time}

$Events | select-object -property TimeCreated, Providername, LogName, ID, Message | Sort-Object -Property TimeCreated -Descending | Export-Csv “c:\temp$cmp.csv”

Just posting what I am now using on W10-1709 - seems to work well and plenty of scope to refine the details returned

$time = (Get-Date) - (new-timeSpan -hour 5)
$EventLogNames = (Get-WinEvent -ListLog * -ComputerName $cmp | where { $_.recordcount -gt 0 } | select-object -ExpandProperty LogName)

Get-WinEvent -FilterHashtable @{ LogName = $EventLogNames; starttime = $time } -ComputerName $cmp |
select-object -property TimeCreated, Providername, LogName, ID, @{ n = “Error Level”; e = { switch ($.level) { “1”{ “Critical” } “2”{ “Error” } “3”{ “Warning” } “4”{ “Information” } } } }, @{ n = “Message”; e = { ($.message).trim() } } |
Sort-Object -Property TimeCreated -Descending
