cygwin/x cannot establish any listening sockets

Running cygwin/x I was facing following error
Cannot establish any listening sockets  Make sure an X server isn’t already running

poked around to find what’s happening, firewall was fine and I was on the administrator account, but it appears one has to set the application it-self as “run as administrator”

i.e. go to the XWin file, right click, get the properties, go to advanced and check  “Run as administrator”.
