I've got an x app which I'd been trying to run for a while and it was refusing to open using VcXsrv and it's packaged version of plink, it did however open fine using Xming or with VcXsrv and an alternate plink.exe.

Anyway, after some investigating it turns out the app was not opening because it was outputting an error, in this case a non-essential file was missing - After adding the file so the error no longer appears it started working again with VcXsrv via its own plink.exe - this should be handled better so apps will still open when non-critical errors occur such as in this situation.

    In the latest release a command prompt will pop up showing the plink error message.
