The usual workaround for this is to make /tmp a user mount, i.e. each
user has their own /tmp.
E.g.: mount -u -b $APPDATA\\tmp /tmp
If that doesn't work, there's either a program already using port
6000, or your firewall/antivirus is blocking access to it.
X uses port 6000 + the display number, so if another program's using
port 6000, you can start X on say port 6002 with "XWin :2".
