RE: Problem in Cron job setup in cywin 1.1.8 on windows NT machine

I  didn't upgrade  cygwin because some of our script are  compatible to run
with  newer version and we are happy with the version we have. and I  just
downloaded the package  related to cron and cygrunsrv to setup a  cron
functionality in my windows  machines so that i need not have to  manually
start the script file every time. Using the  bunzip2 and tar command i
installed it on top of the  old  installation  directory. I  rebooted the
machine today morning.

Oh, and before I forget. Are you sure you didn't upgrade cygwin when you
updated your setup via setup, excuse the pun? Did you reboot after
