Windows 10: Event Log "beta site mode settings 0x800000" on Win10, 1709 and 1803

    Event Log "beta site mode settings 0x800000" on Win10, 1709 and 1803

    Soon after I installed a new computer that came with Windows 10, I exported the Application Event Log to examine some messages that a program on which I was working sent there. I almost didn't find them because they were overwhelmed by hundreds of "beta site mode settings 0x800000" messages.

    Following the recommendation of a trusted colleague, I upgraded from 1709 to 1803 (Redstone 4) the day it arrived, and have seen few of the legions of reported problems.

    This morning, I decided to have a look at the event logs to see whether the many "beta site mode settings 0x800000" messages have been shut off. No; they're still there, at least as numerous as before, maybe more so.

    While most refer to svchost, I noticed a couple that refer instead to MicrosoftEdge. They appear in the Application Event Log, which is in the active tab of Windows_Event_Logs_20180510_135835.xlsx (copy attached).

    Both worksheets in this book contain predefined imports that accept files generated by the SysInternals psloglist.exe utility, using the following command.

    psloglist.exe -accepteula -d %3 -s -t \t %1 > "%~2"
    In the above command line, a shell script (a .CMD file) makes the following substitutions.
    1. %1 = EVTLOG: Registered name of event log, e. g., System, Application
    2. %2 = PIPEFILE: Name of file into which to pipe the output
    3. %3 = NDAYS: Number of days to dump, or "ALL" to dump all event records

    I created this shell script so long ago that I've forgotten what the switches mean; what matters most to me is that it just works.

    I would love to know how these messages can be shut off, so that they no longer clutter my event logs.

    A small problem trying to open the attachment:

    The extension .xlsx was new in Excel 12/Office 2007 while the extension .xls is still valid when dealing with files created in older versions [97-2003] of the program [opening or saving].
