i've search the net but after hours i still cant fix it .
i have to mention that im using windows in this case .
i'd appreciate any help .

Answer

That's actually a Windows specific issue. It works fine on Linux for me. Increase the MAX_WAIT_TIME in the FileWatcher. It's actually timing out.

Have a check at this

You have to increase this:

const MAX_WAIT_TIME = 120000;
