I noticed that X2Go Client ships an old version of VcXsrv, according to the details of
it is version

I downloaded the most recent version ( from:
and installed it on Windows 7.

Then I reconfigured X2Go client:
X2Go Client -- Options -- Settings... -- X.Org Server settings: |x| use custom X-Server

The default values of:
executable:           C:\program files\vcxsrv\vcxsrv.exe
command line options: -multiwindow -notrayicon -clipboard
worked out just fine for me with nmrDraw.

For reference:
In case you misconfigure X2Go Client X.Org server and the message window:
Can't start X.Org Server.
Please check your installation.

prevents you from changing the settings, revert them using 'regedit'. In the path:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Obviously Nice\x2goclient\settings
Kind regards,
