The Cinegy Convert Watch Service runs as a standard Windows service:

Make sure the user, which was used to "Log On As" for the Cinegy Convert Watch Service (Windows service) has read and write permissions for watch folder(s). For the Cinegy Archive Quality Building task the user should have read and write permissions for Cinegy Archive shares. Right after installation the default local system account usually has no such permissions, especially for network shares.

All the settings, logs and other data is stored in the following path: C:\ProgramData\Cinegy\Cinegy Convert\[Version number]\Watch Service. For security purposes, these settings are also stored in the Cinegy PCS, which is handy in case of the machine running the Cinegy Convert Watch Service failure or if you need to run several instances of the service on different machines.

Refer to the Cinegy Process Coordination Service Manual for details on running and configuring the Cinegy PCS.
