Thanks.  It works now.  I noticed you hard coded the path /usr/lib
for searching fonts and RGB file.  Normally X11R6 stuff
is installed in /usr/X11R6.

It would be nice if you can modify the code so it works in
fullscreen mode?

I will put the binary plus source code of you GDI/XVNC based
server on cygwin-xfree Home page for end-users.
