Re: inetd utilities startup


You say that you put Cygwin's bin directory in your PATH variable, but you 
did not say whether you put it in the system-wide PATH (the lower list of 
variables in the System control panel's environment display) or that of the 
current user (at the time you added it)--the upper list in the environment 
variable display. In order for services to find a binary or DLL, it must be 
in the system-wide PATH.

Don't use quotes when setting environment variables in the System control
