Try the 'run' utility in the X-startup-scripts package.  The comment at
the top of the source pretty much explains it:

 * This program is based on the runemacs.c distributed with XEmacs 21.0
 * Simple program to start gnu-win32 X11 programs (and native XEmacs) 
 * with its console window hidden.
 * This program is provided purely for convenience, since most users
 * use XEmacs in windowing (GUI) mode, and will not want to have an
 * console window lying around. Ditto for desktop shortcuts to gnu-win32 
 * X11 executables.
