When you get error 1062, there's usually also some output in the Windows
Event log.  See if there's anything from the cron service?  If there is,
it's probably significant.

What are the problems (errors) when running cron from the prompt?

Also, there shouldn't be any need to point this out, but where is the
"cygcheck -svr" output as requested in <>?
