ciXwin is an X Server implementation for Windows systems with a connection wizard. It is a packaging of X, Cygwin and a collection of related tools to make it a standalone solution ready to use.
X is an architecture-independent system for remote GUI and input, common on Unix-like systems. Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows. It consists of a DLL (cygwin1.dll), which emulates substantial Linux API functionality, and a collection of tools. Cygwin/X is a dedicated project/team taking care of X on Cygwin.
Supported platforms : XP/2003/Vista/2008(R2)/7/2012(R2)/8/10.
ciXwin is available as a zip file containing an installer. Simply unzip your downloaded copy and run the package "ciXwin_x.x.x_Installer.exe" :

ciXwin is designed for displaying remote X clients via ssh, and comes with a connect wizard to help you start X programs/window managers seamlessly:
Connect wizard starts X server in multiwindow mode if not running before, initiates an ssh connection according to your input. Upon a successful connection, you can start your favorite tools/window managers at the client side. Append always an ampersand to your command (like xterm &) for process initiation at the background.
