Hi cygwin guru:
I installed cron 3.0.1-4 the latest version on window 2000.
>From the event log viewer: I have the following error message:
The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( /USR/SBIN/CRON ) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or
message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following
information is part of the event: /USR/SBIN/CRON : Win32 Process Id = 0x8
F0 : Cygwin Process Id = 0x8F0 : (Administrator) CMD (echo
Any idea how to fix this?
I have tried to do
mkpasswd -l >/etc/passwd
mkgroup -l >/etc/group
and restart the cron, but it doesn't help.
Thanks a lot.
