Why does only one FOLDERMONITOR command work at a time? Here is an example session:

C:\> FOLDERMONITOR /s "c:\Creative Focus Publishing" /E"*.bak" /W100 CREATED MODIFIED RENAMED FOREVER Monitor 1 100 "CFP-Folder-Handler1" "c:\JPSoft\Batches\CFP-Folder-Handler.btm"
C:\> touch "c:\Creative Focus Publishing\eBook\Catalog\Christian\Money - Master or Servant\Money - Master or Servant.epub"

C:\> foldermonitor
c:\Creative Focus Publishing CREATED MODIFIED RENAMED (1/FOREVER) Monitor 1 100 "CFP-Folder-Handler1" "c:\JPSoft\Batches\CFP-Folder-Handler.btm"

C:\> foldermonitor /c
C:\> FOLDERMONITOR /s "c:\Indesign Publishing" /E"*.bak" /W100 CREATED MODIFIED RENAMED FOREVER Monitor 1 100 "CFP-Folder-Handler2" "c:\JPSoft\Batches\CFP-Folder-Handler.btm"
C:\> touch "c:\Indesign Publishing\Art\Artistic Ideas & Inspirations\About the Artist.indd"

C:\> foldermonitor
c:\Creative Focus Publishing CREATED MODIFIED RENAMED (1/FOREVER) Monitor 1 100 "CFP-Folder-Handler1" "c:\JPSoft\Batches\CFP-Folder-Handler.btm"
c:\Indesign Publishing CREATED MODIFIED RENAMED (0/FOREVER) Monitor 1 100 "CFP-Folder-Handler2" "c:\JPSoft\Batches\CFP-Folder-Handler.btm"


I show that both FOLDERMONITOR commands work when they run separately but when executed together and files in both directories are touched, only the first FOLDMONITOR command fires. Does this mean only one FOLDERMONITOR command per session?

Here's another example that seems to confirm Craig's observation.
Code:
v:\> del dir1\file1 dir2\file2
Deleting V:\dir1\file1
Deleting V:\dir2\file2
     2 files deleted

v:\> foldermonitor /s v:\dir1 CREATED FOREVER echo %%_folderaction %%_folderfile1 ^> v:\fmlog1.txt

v:\> foldermonitor /s v:\dir2 CREATED FOREVER echo %%_folderaction %%_folderfile1 ^> v:\fmlog2.txt

v:\> foldermonitor
v:\dir1   CREATED   (0/FOREVER)   echo %_folderaction %_folderfile1 > v:\fmlog1.txt
v:\dir2   CREATED   (0/FOREVER)   echo %_folderaction %_folderfile1 > v:\fmlog2.txt

v:\> touch /c v:\dir1\file1
2018-02-02 13:27:05.945  V:\dir1\file1

v:\> touch /c v:\dir2\file2
2018-02-02 13:27:21.124  V:\dir2\file2

v:\> foldermonitor
v:\dir1   CREATED   (1/FOREVER)   echo %_folderaction %_folderfile1 > v:\fmlog1.txt
v:\dir2   CREATED   (0/FOREVER)   echo %_folderaction %_folderfile1 > v:\fmlog2.txt

v:\> type fmlog1.txt
CREATED file1

v:\> type fmlog2.txt
TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified.
 "V:\fmlog2.txt"

A question for cgunhouse ... below, what's the stuff after "FOREVER" and before the command "c:\JPSoft\Batches\CFP-Folder-Handler.btm"?

Hi Vince,

This is a library that I loaded which contains:


Code:
Handler {
  @ECHO OFF
    SETLOCAL
    SET FastTrack=%1
    SET StartupWait=%2
    SET MyTitle=%3
    START %MyTitle /INV /C %4 %5$
    DELAY /M100
    ENDLOCAL
}

Monitor {
  @echo off
  SETLOCAL
  SET DirToMon=%1
  SET FastTrack=%2
  SET DelayTime=%3
  SET HandlerName=%4
  SET HandlerExecutable=%5   
    FOLDERMONITOR /s %1 /E"*.bak" /W100 CREATED MODIFIED RENAMED FOREVER Handler %FastTrack %DelayTime %HandlerName %HandlerExecutable
    ENDLOCAL
}
