Makes sense that it could be run.exe behavior.

However, the version of run.exe from [2] (which is 220K in size vs. 68K 
for the original version ?!?) does not seem to do anything. Running it 
from a CMD window with urxvtermX.bat as the argument does not produce an 
error message, a urxvt term, nothing.

BTW, I made an effort to give both versions of run.exe (I renamed the 
new one runX.exe) the same ownership and permissions, but to no avail.

Am I missing something essential?


P.S. My apologies if this message is not properly threaded. I see how 
one can post an original message from '

previously posted message.
