The XWin.exe is a X11R6 based X-server compiled using Cygwin. Therefore,
if you have Cygwin in c:\cygwin installed
your X-server should be installed in
for Cygwin v 1.1.x \cygwin\usr is mounted at /usr.
It was discussed a couple of days ago.
I think that was your problem on Win95 too. Server was unable to
get RGB colors therefore returning directx unknown errors.

You can type xwin -help
It will print all the command line options and their usage.
I put '-screen 0' thinking that it might

That is -display :0 nopt -screen

command line options with xwin -help. They are standard command line
for any Unices X-server, like XFree86.
