Using this script

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & _
    strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colMonitoredEvents = objWMIService.ExecNotificationQuery _
    ("Select * From __InstanceCreationEvent Within 5 Where " _
    & "Targetinstance Isa 'CIM_DirectoryContainsFile' and " _
    & "TargetInstance.GroupComponent= " _
    & "'Win32_Directory.Name=""c:\\\\scripts""'")

Have you tried FileSystemWatcher?
aimdharma 9-Jan-13 9:08am
No. how do with that.
This is from .NET library. Do you use C++, native, or C++/CLI?

Please see my answer. With .NET, it would be much simpler...

You don't have to use WMI. Consider this:[^].


In response to a follow-up question:

Change journal? All I know is this:[^].

It depends. Is the only problem that it won't invoke callback until file handle is closed? I know.

msdn suggest the Change Journals to use. pls suggest on this.
What exactly about its use? It wasn't in your original question.

I don't know your purpose, so I have no idea why would you need to use journals at all. You may need it or not... Read the overview and see it, as you should know better, based on your purpose.

The link to the overview is available, please see after [EDIT] in my answer. If you need to know something specifically, I would advise to ask a separate question. (Make sure that your new question does not look like a re-post of the present question, to avoid an abuse reports for re-post. You and I know that this won't be a re-post, but someone might do it by mistake. Make it under distinct title.)

Do you mean "how to use C..."?
But what would you need beyond information available in the overview I referenced? You probably need to be more specific, otherwise people will give you the same exact link...
