cwRsync_Server_2.0.9 breaks cygwin X11 Server

Installed cwRsync_Server_2.0.9. Now the already installed cygwnin (1.5.21) X11 server does not work any more.OK, I have been warned by the installer, but is there a way to run
the cwRsync environment and the "standard" cygwin env in parallel?

As specified in the warning you got during the setup, cwrsync server setup makes fundamental changes which affects the other cygwin installation.
I recommend to uninstall cwRsync Server and run cygwin setup again to restore your original installation.

Thanks for the quick answer. Yes, already did this and managed to get the X server working again. But I really would like to use both installations (cygwin and cwrsync). Is there really no way to get this.Maybe by setting the right environment variables or something like that ?

You can install rsync from cygwin setup and follow instructions at Gaztronics - Rsync for Windows for server setup functionality.
