cygrunsrv was specificially created to run Cygwin applications. For
instance, it expects that the inferior application has an idea what a
POSIX signal is. That said, it would be possible to allow native Windows
apps to run under cygrunsrv, but it doesn't really look worth the effort,
given that *useful* native Windows tools for manipulating services are
available, like the on-board tool "sc".
Otherwise, if you're still interested to change cygrunsrv:
