Of course.  xdvi is linked against an X11 server which is not part
of TeX Live.  You could try the xdvi* files I compiled on Cygwin last

  http://ms25.ath.cx/xdviprogs-win32.tar.gz (946 kB)

Extraxt the archive in the bin directory.  If the programs don't work,
the most likely reason is that we have different versions of the
Cygwin DLLs.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
