User Reviews

  • Wow! This project has enabled me to launch and use GUI Linux apps on Windows through WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux). I've created this account just to write this 5 star review!

  • It installed and worked, unlike other X servers for windows

  • I was looking for an Xserver for Windows 10 32-bit to connect with Ubuntu 16.04. I was first introduced to Xming, I figured the latest version of Xming wasn't completely free. I had found and tried older free version, but ran into a bunch of problems with loading errors and fonts. Sometimes the popup windows were out of bounds of screen and fonts were messed up. Some programs didn't load at all. As with VcXsrv, it worked right out of the box, didn't have to tweak anything. It just worked perfectly and fast. Thanks to developers for all the work and making it available for free!

  • marha, please, give usage help in the wiki (the one printing out with -help option). Great software! Million thanks!

  • I could not use clipboard with XMing. I installed VcXsrv and now the problem is solved
