cronjobs for non-administrator-User don't work
Mon May 2 11:23:00 GMT 2011


we have:

Cygwin Configuration Diagnostics
Current System Time: Mon May 02 12:26:11 2011

Windows 2008 R2 Server Enterprise Ver 6.1 Build 7600 

Running under WOW64 on AMD64

Path:   D:\cygwin\usr\local\bin

SysDir: C:\Windows\system32
WinDir: C:\Windows

There, crond is running as service with user .\cyg_serv.

We have two users:
user1 with administrator privilege,
user2 without administrator privilege, but part of the users-group in Windows.

cronjobs for user1 are working.

cronjobs for user2 aren't working.

cron.log shows:
X-Cron-Env: <LOGNAME=edicsuser>

   3147 [main] cron 6352 D:\cygwin\usr\sbin\cron.exe: *** fatal error - unable to load C:\Windows\system32\user32.dll, Win32 error 1114
Stack trace:
Frame     Function  Args

Looking in explorer, I see, that C:\Windows\system32\users32.dll is readable and executable to administrators group and to users group.

Any idea, why user2 isn't allowed to run cronjobs ?
