The sole purpose of XDVI is to provide raster previews.  I suppose
that you are looking for a way to write a bitmap image to a file.  
TeX Live provides dvipng, which generates PNG.  You can use ImageMagick
in order to convert PNG to JPEG if you really want to.

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