I kinda sorta managed to get it working w/ 1.7.11 (Windows Vista, 32bit):
2) remove the service entirely:
$ cygrunsrv -R cygserver
3) reinstall the server
4) manually start the server as Admin (which will fail):
That is: $ /usr/sbin/cygserver.exe
5) then, start the server "for real"
$ cygrunsrv -S cygserver
Repeat 2--5 for each service. Yes, it's magic. No, I have no idea why
I just did this yesterday, so I haven't rebooted since (during which
reboot process, each service would be started automatically, without the
preceeding dance). Not sure if it will "keep working" then or not.
Note, BTW, that I do not have any other problems that would ordinarily
indicate the need for rebase and related hoops, on that machine. (The
cygcheck issue I reported earlier today was on a completely different
system, running a different Windows OS).
