McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention (Host IPS) 8.0 Patch 1 and later


You can use the Host IPS ClientControl tool (located in the installation directory) to convert the unformatted event.log file to a more readable format.

To convert the raw log file, open a command prompt and run the following command:

"C:\Program Files\McAfee\Host Intrusion Prevention\ClientControl.exe" /export /s <path to event log source file> <path of event log export file>
"C:\Program Files\McAfee\Host Intrusion Prevention\ClientControl.exe" /export /s "C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Host Intrusion Prevention\Event.log" C:\Event.log
