How did you install cygwin? The cygwin setup installer has an option to installer for all users - selecting that made cygserver work for me (using XP Pro, sp1). How is cygwin installed on your machine?

Subject: [CYGWIN] sygserver fails with "failed to create named pipe, fatal error on IPC transport"
Thanks to earlier help from you all, I went back and installed the proper
cygserver for the new 7.4.3. But I cannot get it to run. I see in the
README that :
""On Windows NT/2000/XP or 2003, you should always run Cygserver as a
service under LocalSystem account. This is the way it is installed
for you by the /usr/bin/cygserver-config script."
I am running WinXP Pro. But I do not know how to do this (sorry, a real
Windows beginner), could someone please talk me through it? I presume this
is the cause of the failure described below.
Thanks very much,
I have been through the readme for cygserver and postgresql install and
checked permissions and added both CYGWIN and CYGSERVER to Windows system
environment variable with value of server. If I just try to start up cygserver:
$cygserver <i.e. started with no parameters>
cygserver: Initialization complete. Waiting for requests.
cygserver: failed to create named pipe: is the daemon already running?
cygserver: fatal error on IPC transport: closing down"
