I am working with Windows ME. I could be mistaken, but it doesn't seem possible to run as a service under ME. When I try to invoke cygrunsrv, I get a message basically saying that "this service is unavailable". If I am mistaken, then I could use some further clarification about how to run as a service under ME. Thanks.

What version of windows is this on and are you trying to run it as a
service?
