How to trigger the file watcher detector with node red?
I'm new at working with OpenRPA and want to set up a File Watcher. I'm trying this with the note red "rpa detector" but it does not trigger. What do I'm missing? I have followed the OpenIAP Docs.

when ever you change something in the detector window ( every key stroke ) it gets re-created .. Windows does not like that, so if you just created the detector, try restarting the robot.
But it looks like that is not your issue, it seems it does not like space in the path ( that is a bug , i will get that fixed in next release ) so try using short format instead
( use dir /x to see the short format )
so try using c:\FILEWA~1 you can confirm it works by looking in the "logging" tab, you should see a message every time a detector gets triggered .. besides the node in nodered you already have
@roman-sinkarenko damn it .. there is a bug where it does not even save the data ... I'll release a fix later today .. thank you for bringing my attention to this.
@roman-sinkarenko I have uploaded a pre-release of 1.4.31 at https://github.com/open-rpa/openrpa/releases/tag/1.4.31
Hello @Allan-Zimmermann thank you for your quick bug fixing!
I have spent the hole day to test the new function, but for the first time the node red item on the openflow platform disappeared and I can still not test the detector. So I restarted everything ... new installation and new setup. Now I have the node red item again, after creating a new instance it shows me "404 page not found" error. I'm so confused about this situation, and even don't know how this could happen.
I'm new in Docker Desktop and all the things around your platform. But as I can see there is a warning, maybe this is the issue why I can't create a node red instance. I have also checked my permissions. Normally everything should be fine to create one.
Can you please advise me what I can do ... and why this happens, because after the new installation I have lost all my workflows.

I have decided to test it with your cloud version and getting this error @Allan-Zimmermann
@roman-sinkarenko please don't just spam tons of very different errors into the same threads it's going to be impossible to keep track on what is an answer to what ....
So to keep with the original, does my updated version fix your issue with detectors ? ( that it gets saved properly ? ) or where you unable to test that after you decided to re-create your install ?
Also, seems your install was not completed successfull since your missing a dll ... so please uninstall, delete c:\program fiales\openrpa if it still exists and install again and make sure there is no errors doing install
There was an error with that installer .... multiple people had issues and my test machine would also have crashes .. I will investigate this a bit more and re-launch it when it has been tested more ..
