How to run filewatcher as a service

Post by priyakumar » Wed Jun 13, 2007 2:45 am

I have created a service as per the instructions given in the help file. The service is running. In the action i have given a bat file to be executed
"@echo off
echo Printing %1
print %1
echo Complete"

I am not able to see the output of this. Can anyone help :( ?

No - you cannot 'see' the output from a service.

Try using this line:
echo Complete > c:\did_run.txt

and then check for the file 'c:\did_run.txt' to appear.
