Maybe I am wrong, but as far as I can tell, Windows NT does not record event
id 645. The MsAuditE.dll file (the file containing all the event templates)
does not contain a template for this event. Did you ever get the 645 event
on the Windows NT server?

Here is the list of events listed in the MsAuditE.dll file on a Windows NT
SP6a: and here is the
same file on a Windows 2000 Professional:
