That is not from the Cygwin distribution.

You seem to have installed something else on top of Cygwin.

So?  That means the above .bat file is trying to execute something else that also doesn't come with Cygwin... and is not even an executable.

If you received the same error message then something, not Cygwin, messed up your installation.  Same error probably means you executed the same file, are they really named startxserver.bat and startxwin.bat, or is just a typo?

Did you check what was left on the above directory?  If Cygwin did not install whatever is there it will not delete it.
