Hi I am trying to get Folder Action to work... Even if action is attached to a folder as shown below nothing happens when files copied to "programming" folder?

Was able to fix this problem without recreating user profile by deleting files below from /Users/USER NAME/Library/Preferences  and letting system recreate them

I am facing the same issue...even a simple alert script is not getting triggered

On ML 10.8.1, I have created a new empty folder called Actions, and through the services menu item, selected Folder Actions setup ...

Then, I chose "add - new item alert.scpt," and then enabled each check box just as you have done.

I did not choose to edit the alert.scpt item.


When I drag and drop a new file (in this case, a PDF file) into this folder, I get the expected functional alert pop-up:
