thank you very much for your answer!

What do you mean by "start directly" and "Do it"?:
- Do you mean that I should start the X Server manually every time I boot Windows?
That certainly would work, but that's not a solution for me. I want the X Server to start automatically on Windows login.
- Or do you mean that I should register XWin as Windows service? I looked through the Cygwin manual, but I didn't find a solution
how to register XWin as Windows service.
I also tried out; but these tree attempts don't work:
sc create testabc binpath= "D:\Programme\Alias\startx.bat" displayname= "testabc" start= demand
sc create testabc1 binpath= "D:\Programme\cygwin\bin\startxwin.exe -- /bin/XWin -clipboard -emulate3buttons 100 -nounixkill
-nowinkill -xkboptions nbsp:level3" displayname= "testabc1" start= demand
sc create testabc2 binpath= "D:\Programme\cygwin\bin\XWin.exe -clipboard -emulate3buttons 100 -nounixkill -nowinkill -xkboptions
nbsp:level3" displayname= "testabc2" start= demand
They all come with the same error message on startup:
sc start testabc2
[SC] StartService FEHLER 1053:
Der Dienst antwortete nicht rechtzeitig auf die Start- oder Steuerungsanforderung.
Thank you very much!
