This link you gave me is the final solution. I experienced exactly the same problem as Andrew described.

BTDT! Glad my troubles helped you get cron working.

To make the life easier for the other followers:
1. Need to set the mode of cygwin1.dll

$ chmod +x /bin/cygwin1.dll
2. Need to create another directory $ mkdir /etc/cron.d
Also make it accessible, by changing the permission.
3. Then, follow the standard guideline to start cron service, as
$ cygrunsrv --stop cron
$ cygrunsrv --remove cron
$ cygrunsrv --install cron -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D
$ cygrunsrv --start cron

Hopefully, this troubling problem can be solved in the next version cygwin setup.

Maybe such things should be added to Mark Harig's ""? === "Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes."
