Although it's probably moot, the above did not answer my question.  When
you execute cygrunsrv to install the service are you logged on as the
local Administrator or as a user that is a member of the local
Administrators group?

I have just installed numerous instances of the fetchmail service to run
under many different local and domain users without any errors.

Actually, I just thought of another WAG.  Is fetchmail.exe executable by

    $ ls -l /usr/bin/fetchmail.exe 
    -rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain U   169984 Jun 25 11:36 /usr/bin/fetchmail.exe

Or, just by the Administrator?

Under Windows 2000 (and XP?), use Local Security Settings:

    cmd /c secpol.msc

Under NT 4.0, use User Manager:


Note the if a user does not have the "Logon as a service" right, this
will only affect service start up *not* service installation.
