I am trying to setup Cygwin/X for a Vista machine

After setting some executables to run as administrator, and then after
cleaning up some lock files and log files, the x server and applications can
be run by a user with administrator privileges.


1) The x startup (by any method)  throws a UAC prompt
2) A non-privileged user cannot get past the UAC prompt without the
administrator password

Perhaps some .manifest files would cure this?

Are there any other ways to allow a non-privileged user to run cygwin in

Thank you
M. C. Nelson
