	when ever I try the following I get the subsequent error.

	I have set the user 'dani' to be a member of Users, Power Users, and Administrators (I did this progressively trying to install fetchmail at each every change).

cygrunsrv --install "fetchmail for dani" --path /usr/bin/fetchmail --env HOME
=/home/dani --user "GATEWAY\\dani" --args '--daemon 300 --nodetach' --shutdown
cygrunsrv: Error installing a service: OpenSCManager:  Win32 error 5:
Access is denied.

	Do you have any ideas?
