You are correct on the /var/empty. I think it needs to be owned by SYSTEM.
Oh, I just executed now:
# mv /var/empty /var/empty-orig
# mkdir /var empty
# chmod 700 /var/empty
# chown SYSTEM /var/empty
and now sshd is starting fine!
But do you have any idea, what could be the reason?
On my two windows7 fresh installed machines the /var/empty looks like this:
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 cyg_server root 0 Feb 25 18:51 /var/empty/
And sshd is working fine neverthless. That's why I thought about
possible windows8 specific problem...
You can also try the "run as admin" option.
Yes, I always did it in a shell window started by right click -> "run as
admin". Without it I saw "permission denied" error message.
