Marco, thanks for the direction. ($ cygrunsrv.exe -S cygserver )
I might have tried $ cygrunsrv -s server (without the cyg prefix)
According to: /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/postgresql.README
" cygrunsrv is not required anymore, pg_ctl has now the service
cygserver must run as service, CYGWIN must contain server."
That phrase "cygrunsrv is not required anymore" threw me off.
So the above is wrong in that it is needed to start cygserver.
And the environment variable CYGWIN needs to contain the text, "server" in it.
I'll try that.
