Not if "C:\cygwin\bin" was already in your $PATH.



I'm sorry, but that contradicts my own experience. I recently set up Cygwin on a Windows XP system. I invoked "inetd --install-as-service" and found that it would not start. I then went to the Environment control panel, added the Cygwin bin to the system-wide PATH and subsequently the "CYGWIN inetd" started up and functioned just fine.
