I am starting cygserver and postgres in the same bash shell. Here is the result of the "env" comand, in case any of the other variables is of interest. As you can see, CYGWIN=server is included.

Ok,

Are you starting cygserver and postgres in the same bash shell or in
separate bash shells(separate cygwin windows)?

No luck with XP and the source for me yet...

If you run the command, env, from a bash shell does CYGWIN=server appear
in the listing?

I then tried building the source myself, but I wasn't any more successful. Note that the Cygwin install from the mirror site was to a pristine environment - there wasn't an existing Cygwin installation on my PC prior to my original post to this group on Sunday.

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.
