Sorry, i didn't adapt it for local use, i'm using XDMCP to connect to another computer.
You probably want to try:
C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -c -l 'run bash -c -l "startxwin.sh" '
C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -c -l 'run bash -c -l "Xwin.exe :0 & export DISPLAY=:0.0; xterm;  fvwm2 &" '
If you want a unix style fvwm window manager with background window.
