Re: "cannot open display"

Good afternoon, colleagues!

I have established CygWin to compile under Windows the program developed in gcc. At compilation of console applications - all OK. All applications, even rather complex, are started and work without remarks.

However, any attempt to create the program with GTK+, leads to that at their start there is a message "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:".
At distribution kit CygWin there is a program gtk-demo.exe. Obviously, it it is guaranteed it is compiled without mistakes. It is not started and also writes "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:".

My OS - WindowsXP Pro (Rus). What do I do incorrectly?

Forgot to read and follow the problem reporting guidelines?

Problem reports:

My WAG - you're not running the X-server.  Run it and try again.  If
you don't have it, re-run 'setup.exe' and install all the X packages.
Open a command prompt and type 'startxwin.bat' and return.  Wait for
the X-server to start (puts a little "X" in your task bar).  Try again.
