Windows log files/Timestamps

By mjd-de ·
I swear that I recently received one of those techmails or Win2kServer Tips emails that said something about using the .log extension and Windows being able to automatically insert a timestamp each time the file is appended. Does this ring a bell for anyone? I know it can easily be done in a batch or script, but we use a few apps that write their logs without timestamping them, and we aren't able to use a batch in these instances because we can't break into the executables. I thought there was some kind of inate behavior you can invoke through Windows that inserts the timestamp before each modification to a .log file....any help is appreciated.
