When using Powershell for Action script in File Sight, it seem that it is not defending the $act.item object. It always seem to be null when some files are changing or read on the system. I know I have the monitoring part setup right as if I use VBscript, it will have data in the item object. In my test I have it firing both a VBScript script and Powershell script and only the VBSscript items are working. Note that i do get just about all the other data in $act but for $act.item.

What am I missing here?

That new fix worked! Thanks much and now Powershell script is useful. I do like to say your PowerShell examples have a bug as well as you are using $act.CurrentValue[$i] and $act.item[$i] wrong. In your exmaple you are using them as $act.CurrentValue($i) and $act.item($i). They need to be using [] and not ().

Plus I would have in your doc that you can find PowerShell errors in C:Program Files (x86)PA File SightLogsPA File Sight_Helper_Log.txt to help others understand where to look for when something have gone wrong in writing the scripts.

Thanks much for fixing this so fast for me.
