The evtsys.exe needs to reside (or linked to) %systemroot%\system32, but linking to it should suffice too:

fsutil hardlink create %systemroot%\system32\evtsys.exe "%programfiles%\EvtSys\evtsys.exe"

Install as a service (loghost, log all messages, status messages every minute)

evtsys.exe -i -t SOMEPREFIX -h -l 0 -s 1

Now that the service is installed, let's start it:

net start "Eventlog to Syslog"
