Re: Crontab does not work, Windows 2000

Crontab will not run on my Cygwin platform.

I am using Cygwin 1.5.5 under Windows 2000 5.00.2195 Service Pack 4.

I want to schedule some bash scripts using crontab. Each script runs
perfectly fine on its own. I created the following crontab from the bash
shell, located at /bin/bash:

   # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
   # (/tmp/crontab.1904 installed on Wed Nov 19 12:32:06 2003)
   # (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 1.7 2003/04/15 15:13:41 corinna Exp $)

33 12 * * * /usr/bin/bsh_ubcfxscript.txt

When the time scheduled arrives, nothing happens. No error messages occur
and the script does not execute.

cygcheck.out is attached

Thank you.
