| The only way I've been able to get cron running is manually by starting 
| the crond via execution of cron.exe.
| Attached are my cygcheck.txt and crontab.
| I get the following error after I install and start the cron service...
| cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus:  Win32 error 1062:

Did you use cron-config to configure cron?

If the problem persists run cronbug and send the output as an attachment.
