    It appears your permissions are incorrect.
    If using IIS web server, then see this tutorial for changing permissions for your web root.
    This may help too:

    I'm not sure why would you want to use cygwin on a windows 2008 server. That is odd. It will cause more headaches for you. I suggest using Linux instead.

    Did you find out who owns the folder and try to change permissions?
