1.5.18-1: cannot start executables (except cygcheck.exe) on windows server 2003 web edition

When i double click on the Cygwin shortcut on the desktop a new window
pops up and after 2 seconds it hides again. Since i want to use cygwin,
i run start > "cmd" and i tried to lauch bash from the console:
C:\cygwin\bin>bash.exe --version



I also tried a few (maybe another also works) other executables with the same result. Since i was working on a windows machine, i assumed that i had to reboot the machine, but this didnt influence the results in any way

I also tried to see if the application needed the path in anyway or the
executable to be started with the current directory specification

C:\cygwin\bin>set PATH=c:\cygwin\bin\


'.' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.



When i look in the taskmanager's processlist, i dont see any cygwin processes running.

I was happy to see cygcheck.exe working:
C:\cygwin\bin>cygcheck.exe -c -v -r
