The [...] as well as your startxwin.bat script don't work on W7.
On any NT-class Windows, calling a *.bat file causes a 16-bit sub-system to
be spawned, and the .bat file is interpreted within the 16-bit command
Given that Cygwin 1.7 no longer supports Windows 9x systems, it would
probably make sense to convert as many .bat files as possible to .cmd
files, so that they run within the normal 32-bit command interpreter.
Does the startxwin.bat script work when it is renamed startxwin.cmd ?
