Platform info: Oracle on Windows XP

Every time new archived log created Oracle writes messages into NT event
log (similar to what it writes into alert log file).


Trying to disable this "feature", I found hidden parameter
"-disable_ntlog_events" (which is by default set to FALSE).

Changed it to TRUE:

Alter system set "-disable_ntlog_events"=TRUE scope=SPFILE


Restarted oracle, checked if new value was set:


select n.ksppinm name, v.ksppstvl value

from x$ksppi n, x$ksppsv v

where n.indx = v.indx and n.ksppinm = '_disable_ntlog_events';


NAME                                VALUE

---------------------------------------- -------------------------

_disable_ntlog_events          TRUE


But "archiving" messages are still written into NT event log.


Anyone dealt with this problem
