Really. I thought the email archives were literally full of references to
threads on cron.
First, I'm going to direct you to <http://cygwin.com/problems.html>.
Providing good, accurate information about the problem, your system's
configuration, and the process you followed for setting up the service
(applicable in the case of cron) is always good form. But with the
information you've provided, I'll make the WAG that you installed Cygwin
as "Just for Me", which doesn't work if you want to run services. Either
reinstall or look at "man mount" to figure out how to change your mount
points from 'user' to 'system'.
