Custom Sensor not in the list



Hi, I downloaded the NetworkFileCount.exe sensor, copied it on the Probe station (and PRTG Server) in the Custom Sensors\exe folder. But when I want to add the sensor via Exe/Script, it doesn't show in the list

Hello there,

Please make sure to use the "EXE/Script" sensor, not the "EXE/Script Advanced" sensor as this one will look into folder "Custom Sensors\exexml" for scripts and executables.

Also please head to Setup | System Administration | Administrative Tools and hit the "Go" button for Load Lookups and File Lists.

Kind regards,
