Automatic Watch Folder Problems


Hello everybody,
i use AFX 14.1 on Mac OS 10.12 - Sierra, and i cant get the automatic watch folder mode running.

As described here:
i place a afx project file, called “Watch This Folder.aep” inside the watchfolder, and place the file into to the startup documents.
but… nothing happens after starting up. AFX doesn’t open in watch folder mode.
Ok, my OS is in german, so i tried, "
„Diesen Ordner überwachen.aep“
as written here:
again, nothing happens…
does anybody works with thats? and got the automatic watchfolder mode running?

can i get the automatic watch folder mode runnig via aerender terminal script?
