Error code 11 can be confusing when rsync is started as a service on a Windows platform. It can mean that the pid file for rsync already exists in the C:\Program Files\cwRsyncServer folder (or ony other directory where rsync is installed) - although no other info will be given in Windows Event Log. It will become more apparent only if rsync is started as a service from the command line.
