rsync Can't Find ssh

I have cwRsync installed on my Windows XP machine. I tried rsync files with my Linux server and got the following error message:

rsync: Failed to exec ssh: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: error in IPC code (code 14) at pipe.c(84) [sender=3.0.2]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(635) [sender=3.0.2]

The error message seems to say that rsync couldn't find ssh. But ssh is already in my path, and I can execute ssh on the command-line. So I'm not sure what is happening here. Maybe a re-install of cwRsync is in order.

I reinstalled cwRsync 2.1.5 on the Windows XP computer, but the same error occurs. Yet, this version has worked on this Windows XP computer before. I can only guess that one of the recent Microsoft Windows XP patches has broken cwRsync.

I downloaded cwRsync 4.0.4 and installed it. So far, it seems to work.
