How do you switch to the new startup.exe? Every time I try to use the

be compatible with the startup.exe I'm using, but does not give enough

Did you use the current startup.exe recommended on cygwin.com?
Problem 1. I am not able to install Cygwin on Windows 7 x64. I get
the following errors at the end of the installation:
"Postinstall script errors
Upon finishing the installation, I do not obtain the CYGWIN icon on
my desktop as I requested, and the only two applications that appear
on my "All Programs/Cygwin" folder are related to the application
Problem 2: I cannot find the application that starts the X-Server. I
found the CYGWIN.bat file and created a shortcut on my desktop. The
CYGWIN bash application seems to be working.
I am using startxwin to start the X-Server; is this the the
startxwin works for me, but it's messy with lots of warnings. The new
installation should give you an xwin icon on the startup menu. which
puts a menu icon in the hidden icons, with xserver among the selections.
