Re: crontab error

It had the .done extension on it bit I reran it anyway. That did the trick.
I can create a crontab file now, but I still can't start the cygwin cron
service. It's giving me ...

"Could not start the Cygwin cron service on your Local Computer.
The service did not return an error. This could be an internal Windows error
or an internal service error.
If the problem persusts, contact your system administrator."
