I run 32 bit cygwin on a 64 bit machine running Windows 7.

I used to get an XWin Server terminal running bash at startup (logging
into Windows) from which I could run the emacs packaged in cygwin.
After a round of updates I don't get the terminal window at startup and if I try to manually launch it it fails to launch and AFAICT if I try to run emacs from a command prompt I get the native version of emacs that I
also have installed and not the cygwin one.  The shortcut for XWin
Server is

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startxwin.exe

Is the Xserver running and you just don't have the Xterm automatically
run ?
I actually don't know how to do that.  Can you tell me please? (I'm not
really a Windows person at all more Linux ...)

Are the icon of X or XDG visible on the toolbar
as in the attached picture ?
