wdPostman service stops error cannot open file
Mar 2nd, 2016 at 5:03pm
I am running WatchDirectory Professional 4.8.7 and have not been able to send email alerts.  When I start the task via the control panel it runs for a few seconds and then terminates.  In the event log there is an entry:
Source;  Service Control Manager
Description:  The wdPostman service terminated with the following error:  The system cannot open the file.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

That sounds strange... note this is a Windows message, it sounds like it can not find wdpostman.exe.

Can you explore
c:\Program Files (x86)\watchdirectory

and see if wdpostman.exe is present?

Probably best to install the current release (free upgrade) and see if that fixes it.
