Dear Md. Jahidul Islam,

     I presume you are using Xwindows on cygwin.
Can you start xterm from cygwin?
Probably need to do "setenv DISPLAY" or such things.
Please give us more information.

Sorry, had not used Windows for quite a long while since I
switched to a Mac, so someone with experience running cygwin
with X please do help.
