Installing OpenSSH on Windows server 2008

OpenSSH v3.8.1p1-1 Program.
I have used it to monitor win2003 server using SIS and I can monitor the server well.
I tried to use it to monitor win2008 server but after installing it I found that OPENSSH service does not start.
In win event log I found this error:

Faulting application name: cygrunsrv.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x40826252
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16695, time stamp: 0x4cc7ab86
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00033548
Faulting process id: 0x1274
Faulting application start time: 0x01cbf9d83eddc885
Faulting application path: C:\OpenSSH\bin\cygrunsrv.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ntdll.dll
Report Id: 7c8a5365-65cb-11e0-86fc-1cc1def409be

Please Advice.

not sure about openssh but we use posix interix on srv2003 and it works OK. easy enough to install supports all the usual ssh, scp, pass keys etc.

maybe try it if its available for 2008?

the problem is resolved by accessing C:\OpenSSH\bin and right click the file cygrunsrv.exe > proberities > compatibility > show settings for all users > run this program in combatibility mode for: win server 2003
