ssh-host-config fails on Win7 even as admin


I am running ssh-host-config on CYGWIN_NT-6.1 2.6.0(0.304/5/3) 2016-08-31 under Windows 7 Enterprise Service Pack 1 in a Cygwin64 Terminal as Adminstrator:

It breaks with:

*** ERROR: Problem with /var/run directory. Exiting.

Based on that report, I do not see any problems.

Any advice or help would be appreciated.
Thank you,
