Running cron under cygwin

Not a big deal at all ... I got it working on windows8 today ...

All I had to do was - run cron-config (after installing cron under cygwin ofcourse) .. inside a cygwin terminal that was started as administrator!

Thanks to this link -


  1. Thank you so much for posting this. I',m legally blind and LOVE Cygwin but my new Win 8 system wouldn't run CRON and now it does. Thanks again!!
