I recently used this PowerShell script for my project , in order to create Windows event log source in event viewer.

hope it can be useful for other too.

$logFileExists = Get-EventLog -list | Where-Object {$_.logdisplayname -eq “My_Logs”}

if (! $logFileExists) {

New-EventLog -LogName “My_Logs” -Source “MyTempLogs”

}
