View Full Version : file existence check anomaly

I am using the "File Existence" action condition. I test for the existence of a path, not a file. In my environment WinXP using NTFS over a networked drive, the test works, but on another XP machine also with NTFS, the test failed, even though the path exists.

The only reliable way I can perform this test is to test for a file in the path. It is not an elegant solution since I have to add a dummy file if there's not one around for me to test.

Has anyone else experienced the same problem?

Hello,

The file existence condition in the Event Object allows you to check for files only. I will add in a request in our wish database to extend this so it works for directories/folders as well.

Thanks
