Script Monitor not recognizing files in a watch folder?

If your Script Monitor watch folders are set up correctly and you have files of the correct extension in the watch folder, yet the monitor window isn't finding the files, here are some things to check:
  1. Make sure the files in the watch folder are not Read-Only.
  2. Make sure the file names are not over 35 characters long.
  3. Make sure the files have an Archive attribute in properties.

If the files are not read-only and the names of the files are not too long, try exiting AccuZIP6 and deleting the following files, then launch AccuZIP6 and click on the Script Monitor again:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AccuZIP6 5.0\Scripts\Resources\ScriptsToProcess.txt
C:\Program Files (x86)\AccuZIP6 5.0\autoscript.txt

If the files that you're monitoring are being created by an export from within a database program and the Archive attribute is being removed, AccuZIP6 will not recognize that file. Making a change to the file name or to the file's data, or moving the file out of the watch folder and back into it will get Windows to automatically check the Archive box in the Properties of that file. That attribute has to be present in order for AccuZIP6's script monitor to see that file.
