Insight uses a special version of Tcl/Tk which is checked into the 
repository. That uses the native Windows APIs instead of X11. I know 
that there are a quite a number of disgruntled Cygwin users who want 
Insight to work via X11, though.

It's been a while since I tried this, so I'll give it a go.
