2008 Server - method to monitor a folder for file open events

Hello Experts - anyone know of any utilities or methods to watch a folder and trigger an event when a file is opened ?

Ditto when same file is closed ?

Am testing File Sight at the moment but it can't detect closing files.

Will need to trigger a script or program. Logging alone is not sufficient.

Should I tap into WMI and is this difficult to do ?

Any help appreciated
