Re: cygserver error

This makes no difference. I still get the reported errors.

In this doc, I have followed the first prescription, setting CYGWIN
to server in my Windows environment.  (If so I shouldn't even need
to add `set CYGWIN=server` in cygwin.bat.  Isn't this correct?).

set CYGWIN=server in cygwin.bat should be enough. In your bash $ printenv CYGWIN should print: server

Therefore, I should not have to use `cygrunsrv -I foo -p /usr/sbin/foo
-e "CYGWIN=server"` Isn't this correct?  In any case I am not sure what
"service" to implement here to replace "foo"?

If you use any service which uses IPC, you must use the recommended -e "CYGWIN=server" setting. You can look through your cygwin services (cygrunsrv -L e.g.) and look if some cygwin service requires this setting (wading though the docs e.g.).
Out of my head I know by hard only sshd (optional) and PostgreSQL

cat /proc/registry/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/sshd/
=> server

cat /proc/registry/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/PostgreSQL/
=> server

I did try adding `set CYGWIN=server` in my, but I still get the
same errors.

That is an error. .sh shell files require a shell syntax, not a MSDOS command syntax. Try "export CYGWIN=server" in your -- Reini Urban
