ssh-host-config doesn't "inherit" user admin privilege

Fri Jan 15 01:21:43 GMT 2021

I get a security code 5 when ssh-host-config tries to install cygsshd. I was logged into Win 10 pro/x64 as an admin user. The "fix" was to start a Cygwin64 Terminal with Admin and then run ssh-host-config within this script. Other installers have produced the same nuisance. These needed an admin command prompt to get around the same "inheritance" limitation.
