Re: cygserver error


Thanks for info re the Event Viewer info.  I thought that would have
been more useful than it is.

I believe I have set up cygserver as directed; perhaps not:

@lester:~% cygrunsrv -LV
Service             : cygserver
Display name        : CYGWIN cygserver
Current State       : Running

Command             : /usr/sbin/cygserver
stdin path          : /dev/null

stderr path         : /var/log/cygserver.log

@lester:/etc% ls -l cygserver.conf
-rw-rw-r-- 1 SYSTEM root 5138 Apr 19 05:28 cygserver.conf

I have not uncommented any lines in cygserver.conf.
@lester:/etc% diff cygserver.conf defaults/etc/cygserver.conf 
10:39:24 @lester:/etc%

Ignore everything up to here.  All this stuff is added by Windows
and there's no way around this without lots of installing overhead.

This is the only relevant part of the event log entry which has been
produced by cygserver.

The first error message indicates an "access denied" error, which lets
me assume you're running cygrunsrv under a non-privileged account.

Unfortunately, from your cygcheck output it's not visible under which
user account cygserver is running.  Are you starting it via cygrunsrv?
Under the SYSTEM (LocalSystem) account?  The output of `cygrunsrv -LV'
shows that.  If it's not running under the LocalSystem account, please
change that and try again.
