I just re-installed the latest cygwin to have cron installed. Then i run
the following command to install the cron service,
cygrunsrv -I cron -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D
After that I run,
But I get the following message,
bash-3.00$ crontab -e
no crontab for linq - using an empty one
/usr/bin/vi: No such file or directory
crontab: "/usr/bin/vi" exited with status 1
I wonder what the problem is, I can start vi by running, /usr/bin/vi.
I also tried "export EDITRO=/usr/bin/vi" and "export EDITOR=/usr/bin/vim",
neither one works.
