  • Performance monitor Alerter not able to run a program

    Hi, I am having a little problem getting Performance monitor to run a program when an alert is fired. On the action tab of the alert I have checked "Log an entry in the application event log" and "Run this program". The program I am trying to run is just a simple .cmd file that just creates a simple test file (test.txt). If I run the .cmd file by clicking on it, it works fine. But the alerter never runs it even though it writes to the event log. I have started the "alerter" service under services but that made no diffrence. I also took out all the command line arguments. I have tried this on 3 computers, 2 running XP and one running W2003 server. Has anyone any idea on how make the performance monitor start another program when an alert goes off?

    just looking at exactly the same thing at the moment.

    watching task manager it shows the cmd file is running... but not that i can see it...

    Ideally I wanted to get performance monitor to e-mail me when it hit a level - tried looking at the scripted/cmd email tools on this site but none of them are working - although i cant even get it to show me a vbs msgbox at the moment
