I'm programming in UNIX, so I'm using Cygwin. But functions of IPC does not work on it, just in Cygserver. How can I install it? I'm looked in google and did not find any concrete information.
Thanks for your time :)

Cygserver is actually part of the base
cygwin package that every Cygwin user has installed.
$ cygcheck -f /usr/sbin/cygserver cygwin-1.7.35-1 $ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cygserver-config cygwin-1.7.35-1
So you already have it installed, but you need to configure it:
Launch "Cygwin Terminal" "as Administrator"
$ cygserver-config Generating /etc/cygserver.conf file Warning: The following function requires administrator privileges! Do you want to install cygserver as service? (Say "no" if it's already installed as service) (yes/no) yes The service has been installed under LocalSystem account. To start it, call `net start cygserver' or `cygrunsrv -S cygserver'. Further configuration options are available by editing the configuration file /etc/cygserver.conf. Please read the inline information in that file carefully. The best option for the start is to just leave it alone. Basic Cygserver configuration finished. Have fun!
