Hi Scott,

Thanks for your help.

Unfortunatly I didn't succeed with Admin privs. I want to use XWin
because I'm using wmaker inside of startxwin.bat.

Re: XWin.exe not running on Vista

2008-07-19 Thread Scott Fordin

Have you tried starting Cygwin using Vista's Run as Administrator
option? I've found that Cygwin and Vista don't get along at all
unless you run the bash shell explicitly as Administrator.

Also, your message indicates that you're starting XWin directly
from bash, rather than using the startx script. FWIW, I find it
more generally useful to use startx.

Hope this helps,



Hi all,

I have installed the following Cygwin version on a Vista WS ( AMD 64 X2
Dual Core Processor with 32-bits Operating System):

$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.0 nodename 1.5.25(0.156/4/2) 2008-06-12 19:34 i686 Cygwin

When I try to start XWin.exe, I get the following message:
