I was able to get both cygserver and postmaster to install as services under
XP Pro, but only cygserver will successfully run as a service.
postmaster fails to run as a service, either from the command line or the
control panel services applet. C:\cygwin\bin is in the system path.
Here is the error when run from a bash shell prompt:
$ cygrunsrv -S postmaster
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error 1062:
The service has not been started.
The Windows event viewer lists the following errors:
postmaster : PID 3388 : starting service `r' failed: redirect_fd: open (1,
/var/log/postmaster.log): 13, Permission denied.
postmaster : PID 2716 : starting service `postmaster' failed: execv: 1,
Operation not permitted.
