SSHD Issue Windows 2003 64 bit

Fri Aug 19 21:59:00 GMT 2011

I've re-installed cygwin on a fresh virtual machine (offline install)
and have tried running:
'ssh-host-config' -- still no echo from the terminal
'cygrunsrv -S sshd'  -- cygrunsrv: Error starting a service:
OpenService:  Win32 error 1060:The specified service does not exist as
an installed service.
'net start sshd' -- The service name is invalid.  More help is
available by typing NET HELPMSG 2185.

My environment variables below:
Value: C:\
Variable: Path
Value: C:\cygwin\bin
Value: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp
Value: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp

I have re-created the passwd file and group file via our previous
conversations.  What other steps could I take to ensure SSHD to run as
a service on Windows Server 2003 r2 64bit?  Any other ideas?
