i am using NXlog to collect windows logs But i was unable to collect events.

You've posted your question in the logstash-forwarder category but that piece of software does not and will never collect Windows event logs. However, Logstash has an eventlog plugin and there's ongoing work to add a Beats program (Winlogbeat) for doing the same thing.
