run.exe fails to start XWin in Windows 8.1

You review (and possible upload) the output from this directory:
You could at least then confirm the xwin application is running, and starting (even if it then crashes)...

I had issues after recent upgrades (probably over a year ago) because of what I had in my local .startxwin...
I only discovered it by looking at these xwin logs.

Thanks for following up on this.

But I'm sorry, there's nothing to go on there.

Is it possible for you to upload the output of stracing that run command somewhere?
