Since yesterday starting "XWin.exe -multiwindow -clipboard" starts,

After starting I only see:
Welcome to the XWin X Server

Do you know what version you updated from?

[   137,093] glWinSelectGLimplementation: Loaded 'cygnativeGLthunk.dll'

This looks like the xserver is crashing whilst trying to initialize WGL.

You might try adding '-nowgl' to the XWin options.

You may find that updating your graphics driver, if possible, resolves this.

(Since this seems to happen with some graphics drivers, there is code in the X server which attempts to catch crashes in WGL initialization and turn WGL off, but that doesn't seem to be getting control in this case)
