You should read the docs.

You dont have the wineventlog set in your default search for your user or the group the use is in. Look at the permissions and associated Role Based Access Control. Here is the starting point : http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.3/Security/Aboutusersandroles

You will need to add either "All Non-Internal Indexes" as a search capability, or add your manually created indexes to the Indexes searched by default.

Best practices though is to include your index in your base search.
