Hi,

I was wondering if there is a simple way to make this happen.

I want to execute a bat file everytime a new file is added/deleted/overwritten in a folder.

thanks a lot for all the help so far.

A tool like http://www.datamystic.com/filewatcher.html should do exactly what you are looking for.

If you are looking to develop your own, http://www.codeproject.com/KB/files/directorywatcherservice.aspx should give you great place to base your application off of.
