There is a Windows version of FigP. I found it several years ago in a catalogue of 
scientific software -- don't know if it still on the market. The company used to
have a website: 


but it didn't work when I tried it today.

Another program that might solve your problem is GraphPad Prism. It is not as flexible
as FigP but much easier to use. There are versions for both Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 / NT


I hope this is helpful
