No, you just need to follow the procedure as described in:

Did you redirect the output, as in:

cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out

If yes, the output should be in the current directory. If you can't
find the file, try (from a Cygwin prompt)

cygcheck -s -v -r > `cygpath -D`/cygcheck.out

That would put the output on the desktop.
The warnings about OpenService are harmless.
