Re: error setting up ipc-daemon


I was under the impression that the currently recommend way to get inetd running as a cygwin service was this:

inetd --install-as-service

The resulting Windows service does not use cygrunsrv to invoke inetd--it is launched directly:

Path to executable: D:\cygwin\usr\sbin\inetd.exe

An excerpt from "cygrunsrv --help" below

You can add up to 255 environment strings using
the `--env' option.
Note: /bin is always added to $PATH to allow all
started applications to find at least cygwin1.dll.

shows that you shouldn't really need to add c:\cygwin\bin to your system
path (if one uses cygrunsrv, that is). If that is not the case, then it's
a bug in cygrunsrv (or an error in documentation).
