Dear Dr Telang,
To my knowledge xfig may not work in windows (may be you can try installing 
Cygwin and run it in windows platform).
xfig is definitely a wonderful tool for making pictures. However, in windows 
platform you can use the following which generate LaTeX / TeX / eps / png / 
pdf / ... as output formats

(i) Inkspace (http://www.inkscape.org/)
(ii) jpgfdraw (http://theoval.cmp.uea.ac.uk/~nlct/jpgfdraw/index-frame.html) 
(iii) LaTeXDraw (http://latexdraw.sourceforge.net/index.html) 
(iv) Tikz (http://www.texample.net/tikz/resources/) . Here you can find lots 
of lots of tools for use in  Linux / mac / Windows platforms.

I hope, your students will get in love with LaTeX.
