Monitor Events Activity not working

I am unable to get any kind of trigger working. I followed a video by UiPath Learner exactly (I can’t seem to link YouTube videos here), but when the file is added to the folder, nothing happens and the bot continues to run - it will run up to the monitor events activity if there are any activities before it. I also tried with file changes and renames with the same result. Somebody on an old post mentioned that changing RepeatForever to False might work, but it did not change anything for me.
