    How to save a shell script in Uwin

    Hi All,
    Actually im new to Unix and trying to learn shell scripting in uwin(freeware) on windows xp machine.
    I tried writing the shell script with vi mode, but my problem is I am unable to save this script file even after specifying :wq option ie I am unable to save the file and quit from vi mode to shell mode.

    Can anyone suggest me with proper approach to do so.
    Thanks & regards,

    Not a clue off-hand, but I'd guess it was to do with permissions - where, exactly, are you trying to save this file?
