The .evtx and path is already defined for you. It really is that simple. Each channel you add will become a Log Entity with the Log Source being the logical collection. Therefore if you go to the Visualisation tool in OMC you will by default see the Log Source but not the Log Entities. To show the Log Entities you simply drag and drop them into the display field.
