I'm running xelatex installed from TeXLive 2013 running on Cygwin, and it works fine compiling from the commandline with xelatex input.tex or latexmk, but for some reason running the same file through AUCTeX's compile command with C-c C-c with TeX-engine set to xetex crashes xelatex with the output of the log file:

This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-0.9999.3 (TeX Live 2013/W32TeX) (format=xelatex 2014.4.9)  9 APR 2014 22:55
entering extended mode
 restricted \write18 enabled.
 %&-line parsing enabled.
**\input input.tex

! Emergency stop.
 \input input.tex

*** (job aborted, file error in nonstop mode)

Here is how much of TeX's memory you used:
 2 strings out of 493918
 17 string characters out of 6151720
 52462 words of memory out of 5000000
 3428 multiletter control sequences out of 15000+600000
 3640 words of font info for 14 fonts, out of 8000000 for 9000
 1144 hyphenation exceptions out of 8191
 4i,0n,3p,1b,8s stack positions out of 5000i,500n,10000p,200000b,80000s
No pages of output.

C-c ` just says:

Error occurred after last TeX file closed.

Does anyone know of any additional configuration I need to do to get AUCTeX working under windows? Or is there a way to run the AUCTeX compile command with some flags to get some more info about why xelatex is exiting?

The relevant parts of my emacs configuration are as follows:

(setq TeX-auto-save t)
(setq TeX-parse-self t)
(setq-default TeX-master nil)
(setq TeX-engine 'xetex)
(setq TeX-PDF-mode t)

I would appreciate any help as it would be nice to not have to switch back to the commandline to compile everytime I make changes. Also, if there are more relevant lists or boards I should post this to in order to get help, I would love to know.
