When I recently installed Cygwin anew on a system not my own and wanted
to enable the Cygwin inetd, I had what might be the same problem. One
thing that tipped me off was the fact that although the message was
about the service not starting up "in a timely fashion," the failure
occurred essentially immediately upon my attempt to manually start the service.
It turned out that the system-wide PATH must contain the directory
holding the Cygwin1.dll. I think that's because inetd is in /usr/sbin
and Cygwin1.dll is in /bin (a.k.a. /usr/bin). Were they in the same
directory, I don't think a PATH addition would be required to locate
You'll also want to make sure that all your Cygwin mounts are system
mounts, or they won't be seen by inetd and it may not be able to find
other files it needs
