This sounds a lot as if you lost important permission bits, like the
right to execute a certain module. Are the two machines standalone
machines or running in a AD domain? If the first, you created probably
invalid ACLs since the SIDs of the user accounts are different, except
for the builtin accounts. This affects especially the local cyg_server
default account running the services. It has a different SID on each
machine, obviously. Also, if you didn't regenerate the /etc/passwd and
/etc/group files, the POSIX uid/gid to Windows SID translation is broken
(again: Other machine, other SIDs).
Bottom line is, don't copy over a Cygwin installation from one machine
to another, unless you know exactly what you're doing and how to fix the
settings in /etc and elsewhere afterwards.
