cygrunsrv startup issues

Good Day:

Windows 2003 Std.

when I try to start the  cygrunsrv service, I get the following messages in the 
SSHD log.

Could not load host key: /etc/ssh_host_key
Could not load host key: /etc/ssh_host_rsa_key
Could not load host key: /etc/ssh_host_dsa_key
Disabling protocol version 1. Could not load host key
Disabling protocol version 2. Could not load host key
sshd: no hostkeys available -- exiting.

I can see that the host key files are there in the cygwin/etc directory.

Here is the output of the cygrunsrv -LV command.

Service             : sshd

Any Ideas.
