"Init for monitor fails" error--WD Pro task
Nov 17th, 2015 at 10:04pm
 
I am wondering what is causing Watch Directory Pro to throw a "Init for monitor fails" error message when starting a newly created task.  After a few minutes, the task shuts down.

We use Watch Directory to monitor several server shared directories for file changes, and to send an email notification.  I have had other tasks setup for quite awhile, also monitoring directories on the same server, and they have been working fine.

This startup message is because WD can not access the monitored directory. This typically happens when you run the task as a Windows Service and monitor a network directory.
Please read this blog with the solution: http://blog-en.gdpsoftware.com/2010/04/watchdirectory-tasks-as-windows-service.h...
