There is a Windows version (1) which doesn't require cygwin and actually
doesn't need installation at all as far as I remember.

The better option is to install VirtualBox (2), install some Linux
distro as a virtual machine (which is handy anyway) and then install and
use FontForge on it.

But beware. Conversion of fonts is not that easy and the result is
sometimes not perfect. If there is a TrueType alternative of your font
available, it's usually better to buy it than go into the hassle of font
conversion, nevermind the possible license issues.
