OS: WIN 7 64 bit Service Pack 1

I have cygwin installed on both a Win 7 32 bit machine and on Win 7 64 bit machine. The setup on Win 7 32 is working. I am having trouble with the setup on Win 7 64.

I am trying to automate cygwin rsync by calling a unix shell script in the /cygdrive/c/cygwin/usr/local/bin.

I have ssh installed as local service and privledged separation and start it using hstart as I want to run with highest privileges so do not have to see the console windows. Our application is calling a datasync.sh script by writing to the dos command prompt. This works fine on Win 7 32 bit machine.

On the Win 7 64 bit machine, the same process does not work. Although I can ssh without password through the cygwin terminal without error and call the same rsync commands as in the script manually without error.

This is the cygcheck:

$ cygcheck -s
