In my .emacs file, I have included the following line:

(setq x-super-keysym 'meta)

However, when I run emacs and attempt to type M-x by hitting Win+X, Windows 7 interprets the keystrokes and opens windows mobility center.

Am I stuck using either Esc or Alt as meta? Or is there a way to get the Win key through putty to emacs?

If your intention is to use Win as Meta, I would suggest you to remap your keyboard using sharpkeys, or autohotkey.
