Cygwin Cron not running

I have been trying for a while to get cron working for cygwin on a windows 2003 Server, but to no avail.  When I run cron-config, cron_diagnose states:

... no problem found.  

INFO: A cron daemon is already running.

I have a cron.log file in /var/log, however it is empty.  Also, the contents of /tmp is empty as well.   Currently I am trying to run 2 jobs, one is a shell script and one is a simple echo command to a file to see if I can get anything to work.  Neither of the jobs run.  Here is the output of my crontab -l  (Both of these command work fine if run from the command line).

51 1 * * * /cygdrive/d/backup/cproot.shl
51 1 * * * echo "Hello" > /cygdrive/d/backup/hello.txt

I've attached the cronbug.txt file to this email.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me.
