I think that Forte 3.0 is written entirely in Java; correct me if I'm wrong. So I would expect it to run similarly to Borland's JBuilder 5 and IntelliJ's IDEA, the IDEs that I've seen run fine on Windows XP Professional. Do you have a compatible Java Runtime Environment or SDK installed? Maybe more information about your problem would help us help you solve your problems with Forte. That said, I'd love to see another person realize what they've been missing in IDEA!!! I don't plan on ever using something like JBuilder or Forte again!
P.S. I like Eclipse as well, but I haven't yet used it for production coding like I have IDEA.
