Could anyone please suggest me how to query events from event logs from a source ?
I referred to "MSDN"[^] but I'm not sure what -
#define RESOURCE_DLL            L"<path>\\Provider.dll"
refers to in the above link .
I'm pretty new to C++ and I'm badly in need of suggestions and inputs. It would be helpful if you could point me to some other source/link that could resolve the problem.

The article you referenced really explains how to do that, but the question is unclear: what seems to be a problem and what does this code line mean, how is it related to your problem?

"#define RESOURCE_DLL L"<path>\\Provider.dll"

My question is I'm not sure what this DLL has to be? Why is the DLL needed? I tried without specifying any DLL - in the further part of the code, the HANDLER will be NULL since i have not specified any DLL, and the program doesn't behave as expected.

I want to look for particular event IDs from a particular source, get the message details in form of a string.

You can look for a particular event ID using the EvtQuery() API. In order to get the message details as a string, use the EvtRender() API. The below link has some more details.
