There are minor changes and with more effor the ICMP could

Does this mean that you actually have monit working on a win32 platform with cygwin!? Can monit start, stop and restart programs? Can you signal monit, i.e. do a monit quit and monit restart and finally, does monit's http server run?

It's been a long time since I used a win platform, but I seem to recall that win32 uses services and runs them in separate threads, which is different from monits concepts of process ids and pid files. I.e. I cannot see how monit can be used standalone on a win32 platform outside of a cygwin environment? More the kudos to you if you can prove me wrong :)

Where do I send the changes?

You should join the monit developer list and send your changes there as a patch if you get it to work. Please discuss implementation details and choices you made if you submit a patch.
