/usr/bin/make-emacs-shortcut has:

  mkshortcut --desc="Emacs" \
    --icon="/usr/bin/emacs.ico" \
    --arguments="--display ${XMLFILE}" \
    --name="emacs" \

What is /usr/bin/run2.exe? I don't have it on my system.

PS I'm using:

  cygstart --action=runas run emacs-w32

with Windows developer mode on to avoid console window ("run" utility) and
elevated ("cygstart --action=runas") to be able to edit
$WINDIR/system32/etc/hosts from Emacs (otherwise I have to launch elevated
Notepad xD).
