Try to use Cygwin PATH syntax.

If there is an error, there are logfiles in /var/log and there is
also logging in the eventlog of Windoze.

$ crontab -l

touch /crontestfile.16

$ ls -l *cron*

Well, it seems the clock of cron runs different?

You may add the TZ setting to the service:
cygrunsrv -I cron -d "Cygwin cron" -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D \
 -e 'TZ=CET-1CEST-2,M3.5.0/02:00:00,M10.5.0/03:00:00' -e 'CYGWIN=ntsec tty'

Something like this (above is my TZ).
