Hi everyone,

Don't know if it is the right place to post, please kindly direct me
to the right group if it is not proper here.

I intend to run a cron job on Cygwin. The Cygwin runs on WinXP.

I checked the Windows service list and found cron service is started.

I use "crontab -e" to set up the following task,

30 * * * * /cygwin/d/expect scriptname.exp

I checked "crontab -l". It shows:

# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
# (/tmp/crontab.5352 installed on Mon Mar 26 12:21:31 2007)
# (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 1.8 2004/12/21 16:14:41 corinna
Exp $)
30 * * * * /cygwin/d/expect scriptname.exp

I suspect it is the priviledge problem, so I type "crontab -u {myWinXP
login ID} -e" and it shows:

must be privileged to use -u

Anyone knows that is the problem? Thanks in advance.
