BizTalk Event Log error: The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched.

My BizTalk development machine runs on Windows 7. In an orchestration I've wrote
System.Diagnostics.EventLog.WriteEntry("Payment Automation","Instantiated the Process Engine");

When it runs, i can see following error in the event log. But I wont get this in Windows 2003 R2 server.

The following is a stack trace that identifies the location where the exception occured

To avoid this error we have to do following steps.
  1. Run RegEdit.exe
  2. Expand hives to the level of following
    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\EventLog\Application
  3. Insert a new key to the Application hive, in this case "Payment Automation"
  4. Insert a new String Value called "EventMessageFile" under the "Payment Automation"
  5. Double click on "EventMessageFile" set Value Data as "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\EventLogMessages.dll"
Final windows registry editor will look like this,
