xdvi is an X application.  You need a running X server to be able to
display it.  If you want a non-X dvi viewer, use yap from MiKTeX.

Cygwin/X programs need to be invoked from an environment with a properly
set up PATH (e.g., a bash shell).  You can also add the Cygwin /bin
directory to your system PATH.
