The EVT format file is a file created by Windows Event Viewer, a program that logs system events.
In this case, the EVT contains a series of log messages that contain an ID and a series of insert strings.
The EVT is in proprietary binary format, and is used to review, analyze, and debug system performance.
To view EVT files, a computer needs to have the DLL files of the program that generated the log events.
In case the DLLs are not installed, the following error is displayed:
'Could not find description for event ID ...'.
