Why no chance for a syslog server?  Doesn't have to be a Unix box. 
There are a number of syslog servers that will run on Windows or Mac
servers and Windows or Mac clients.

I'd tell them if they want the logs, they have to run a syslog server
on some system.  It's way too much trouble to try to do anything else.
