openSSH/sshd setup Windows 7: Insufficient user privileges

Hey,

I have a new install of Windows 7. I've installed cygwin with openssh...but when I run the ssh-host-config it tells me it needs to create a privileged account to start/stop services.

When ittires, it fails saying "Windows error 5" Account has insufficient privileges. I'm using a windows administrator account.

What do I need to do?

Thanks!

Do you have UAC turned on? You can try turning it off, run ssh-host-config and then turn it back on. Or you can right-click and run ssh-host-config and run as Administrator. You can turn off UAC (User Access Control) by going to the control panel, select User Accounts, then "Change User Account Control settings"

So obvious and yet so elusive ;-)  

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! Everything's functioning as hoped!
