[KyOSS Discuss] Need help with permissions on, <gasp>windows</gasp>

It's been a while since I've run Apache in Windows, but since you 
mentioned Cygwin: 

Make sure the sites/default/files folder had the correct ACLs / 
permissions.  Assuming Apache is compiled natively (run outside Cygwin), 
I don't think Cygwin's output really matters.  In either case, check the 
user that is running the Apache process and make sure appropriate ACLs / 
permissions are set for that user.

As a side note:  Personally, I'd have a proper VirtualBox image to run 
this, assuming the machine can handle it.  (-:
