Actually, I tried both. I first installed Cygwin and postgresql and various other packages from the Cygwin mirror at ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov and encountered the "shmat" problem. 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.

You are correct that services cannot be run under ME.
Did you build from source or install it as cygwin package?
I receive the same error when trying to run it under XP when building
from source. Using the cygwin package it works fine. I have not yet
had the time to continue to debug why I can't execute from the source

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.

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to majordomo(at)postgresql(dot)org)
