Sorry I read this already, but I'm not sure that I understood it correct. As far as I understood it this means.

1. Method would be installation cron as privileged account and do nothing else?
2. Method would be installation with telling using cyglsa packages and do nothing else?
3. Method same as method 1 but making passwd -R after setting up cron?

Setup of the cron I did with admin rights.

If I'm wrong please tell me.

I changed the setup of cron that a privileged account should run the cron but I got the same error on any cron entry.

I think I used this already because on initial setup I told the cron-config that I using the cyglsa package.

when I use passwd -R as normal user I got the error.
Storing password failed: Function not implemented
As Admin the is no error.

Here the cron entries are running. I change the option at the service but still no excel comming up.

I tried all but still no excel running in foreground.

I will read replies only from the mailing list. 
If you send me email directly it will be deleted.
