Not sure if I remember this right, but there is a cron-config in the
package, and that is what you are supposed to use to install it as a
service (and set a proper daemon user, file & dir access, etc.)  You
probably will have to undo whatever you did with cygrunsrv.

Better read /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/cron-4.1-65.README to be sure.

Hope this helps.
