Check File Condition in Windows With $ in Path Does Not Work
Resolution:

Symptoms

Check File Condition in Windows With $ in Path Does Not Work.

For example: \\path\to_file$\file.txt

The check file condition will not find the spcified file.


Cause

Java needs the ~ as an escape character before the $ character.


Resolution

add a ~ character in front of the $ character \\path\to_file$\file.txt 

The path will then look like this:  
 
\\path\to_file~$\file.txt
