# [SOLVED] cygserver service won't start

After I checked the syntax of the CMD command and was set to change the dash-c to a slash-C, I looked carefully at the PATH variable I had defined in Windows and found that I had prepended a misspelled Cygwin pathname as follows:

D:\cygwn\bin

I removed this and after I restarted Windows the 'cygserver' service, which had been set on Automatic, started successfully.

My sincere apologies to Igor, Corinna, and the other posters and readers for wasting your time.

Regards,

Alder
