A port of the inotifywait tool for Windows, see https://github.com/rvoicilas/inotify-tools

$ %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\csc.exe /t:exe /out:inotifywait.exe src\*.cs
Microsoft (R) Visual C# 2010 Compiler Version 4.0.30319.1

The command line arguments are similar to the original one's:

$ inotifywait.exe
Usage: inotifywait [options] path [...]

-r/--recursive:  Recursively watch all files and subdirectories inside path
-m/--monitor:    Keep running until killed (e.g. via Ctrl+C)

-e/--event list: Events (create, modify, delete, move) to watch, comma-separated. Default: all
--format format: Format string for output.
--exclude:       Do not process any events whose filename matches the specified regex
--excludei:      Ditto, case-insensitive

Formats:
%e             : Event name
%f             : File name
%w             : Path name
%T             : Current date and time
