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.

postmaster seems to load normally from a command line with pg_ctl.

I tried installing it as a service to be run by the postgres user (with
privileges to run as a service) per the README, and then by my logon when
that failed.
