WinService and filesystemwatch er

Hi

I'm trying to make a service that check if a new file is created in a specific folder. I use this code

fwFichierImp.Pa th = "c:\Test\
fwFichierImp.Fi lter = "
fwFichierImp.In cludeSubdirecto ries = Tru
fwFichierImp.No tifyFilter = NotifyFilters.C reationTim
fwFichierImp.En ableRaisingEven ts = Tru
AddHandler fwFichierImp.Cr eated, AddressOf ImpFichie

but the Handler doesn't execute the code. In the handler I only write an entry into the Log. I use LocalSystem to install my service. If I write into the Log in the OnStart it work perfectly but not in the handler

Thanks for any help you can provide.

How do I prevent the FileSystemWatcher event to keep firing while the file is being created? When copying a file to the watched folder, the event fires a dozen or more times! Also, the documentation states that if more than one file is copied to the folder at the same time, a cache will queue them up for processing, but when I drop 3 files into this folder, only the 1st (sometimes the first two) cause the event to fire. Thanks, Troy

I started a winservice on VS.NET and it was all going fine, I wrote over 500 lines of code and wanted to test them without installing the service, so I added a main method and set a starting point to my project, now I have taken both those things out and when I compile no exe is made and it says Program 'blah blah blah' does not have an entry point defined how can I make it realize its a winservice again?

Hi, I have the following problem: I want to enable data transfer between my WinService and the Desktop I tried to set the flag manually in the Registry at (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MHC\Type=0x00000110), but it didn't work. The flag was checked in the dialog, but the WinService didn't recognized it properly. Has anybody a idea??

I'm trying to figure out a way to catch when a file has been written to a directory. I currently have it where I can catch when the file begins writing, but this isn't helpful as I need to know when its done. Does anyone know the right combination of flags to use to catch when the file has been written and closed? (here is my current code). // member variable FileSystemWatcher watcher = new FileSystemWatcher();

I have been working on trying to write a directory watcher service. One of the requirments is that it be able to watch multiple directories, not sub directories of one parent directory, but just multiple directories. I have hit a snag and don't know how to get around it. Basically I read in a list of directories from the app.config and stuff them into an array, so that I have something like this: sDirsToWatch = "C:\Temp"

Hi, I want to use the FileSystemWatcher in a Windows Service. I read an article, where the author created the FileSystemWatcher object in a seperate thread and when the event is fired, he started a working thread for processing the file, created a new FileSystemWatcher (as he said for real time processing), and then called the join method for the first thread. I can't really see the sence in this. Aren't the events of the...

I am trying to find out if there is a way to tell if there is already a filesystemwatcher (created by a webservice) monitoring a folder. I have a webservice that creates a filesystemwatcher, monitors a folder and then returns the contents of the new/changed files. However, if the client app loses connection to the webservice without closing the filewatcher, and then reconnects (and thus creates a new watcher), I believe I end up with...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
