The title pretty much sums it up - I like editing text with xemacs running under cygwin, and I'd prefer not to have it spawn a console window when I start it from a shortcut. Any suggestions?

The run command, in the run package, does exactly this:

c:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/xemacs

The console window may flash visible for a moment when you start Xemacs, but after that it will be hidden.

It works! (Note that it changes the shortcut icon, you will have to manually set the icon if it bothers you). – Marcin Oct 30 '11 at 16:56
