Try Using Exceed By Hummingbird.
I used to run X applications without any problems using Exceed from Hummingbird on Pcs running Windows NT. (XP is based on NT)
Exceed can run an X Server on a PC or can access a remote Unix/Linux box if connected.

Porting openmotif to Windows XP by any means
WEB = http://www.scl.com/products/ics/datasheets/bxwinsdk.html
BX/Win SDK enables developers to quickly and easily port Motif/UNIX applications to Windows NT while still developing and maintaining only one set of source code.
BX/Win SDK? provides a robust, cost-effective, and quick solution for porting Motif and UNIX based applications to Windows? NT.
Applications are developed only once -- on the UNIX side, and only one set of source code is maintained. To run applications under Windows, recompile the code on the NT system using BX/Win SDK.
Furthermore, application end-users can tailor their user interfaces to their own preferences with either a Motif or Windows look-and-feel. Both Motif and Windows users will get the user interface style that they prefer.
BX/Win SDK includes the NT versions of EnhancementPak and ViewKit and a NuTCRACKER? X/SDK. NuTCRACKER X/SDK provides a complete NT version of X11R5, Motif, UNIX SVR4, Berkeley extensions, and POSIX APIs. Additionally, it includes over 140 of the most commonly used UNIX commands and utilities.
Quick time-to-market to extend Motif/UNIX applications to Windows NT platforms
Complete X11R5 compliant NuTCRACKER X/SDK
NuTCRACKER ported libraries of EnhancementPak and ViewKit
Runtime choice of Motif or Windows look-and-feel
Single source code development and maintenance
Here's How It Works
BX/Win SDK provides NuTCRACKER's UNIX tools, UNIX libraries, and X Win32 libraries. Developers compile their C or C++ source code and link with the libraries provided by NuTCRACKER and the NT versions of the ViewKit and EnhancementPak libraries to create native Win32 applications. These applications can be extended to take full advantage of Windows NT powerful featuresQ OLE, DDE, speed, performance, and friendliness.
As a result, BX/Win SDK helps developers maintain their investment in UNIX software and expertise as they benefit from the functionality of Win32.
The Full-featured NuTCRACKER APIs
The cornerstone of BX/Win SDK is NuTCRACKER X/SDK from DataFocus Incorporated. NuTCRACKER supplies the UNIX environment on NT needed by even the most demanding applications. A partial list of UNIX APIs supported on NT includes:
UNIX SVR4, Berkeley extensions, POSIX, X11R5 and Motif API support
fork() and exec()
C, C++ support
Shared memory, semaphores, and message queues
Multi-user file I/O with locking on all Windows NT file systems
Extensive UNIX-to-Windows NT security mapping
Networking support via Berkeley sockets
Full Access To The Power Of Win32
NuTCRACKER X/SDK enables you to achieve full integration with other Win32 and Win16 applications, including:
Clipboard, DDE, named pipes, BSD sockets, shared memory, and semaphores
Graphics Device Interface (GDI)
Object Linking and Embedding (OLE)
Messaging API (MAPI)
Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
Windows NT Registry
Development System Requirements
133 MHz 586 based processor
X86 based NT 4.0+
120 MB disk

Compile up LessTif for
Compile up LessTif for Cygwin (Unix compatibility layer for Windows) and then try compiling your application using it.
Unless your program triggers one of the bugs in LessTif, it should be quite straight forward.
Good luck. Any problems, let me know.

The question is weather you want to really port your application to the win32 api or just want your application to run on a windows xp machine with little work as possible.
At the moment i have a similar problem i want to run a application written in plain c for linux/X11/openmotif on a windows xp machine without a seperate linux installation or remote linux pc available.
There are several options for this
Let me know if this helps.
