You had installed <http://sshwindows.sourceforge.net/> in the previous
virtual machine. This is incompatible with Cygwin's installation.
That's why I recommended choosing it or Cygwin and its package. So
if you're content to use Cygwin's package, you can install openssh
via setup.exe now.
I hadn't noticed that you are using Xen as the basis for your
virtualization. Be aware that Xen has had problems in the past supporting
Cygwin. I don't know if those issues have been resolved in Xen or not.
But if you continue to experience trouble under Xen, you may want to try
a different product like VirtualBox, VMWare, etc. That may help you.
