Executing shell script on local machine

Hi guys,
I need to run and test some shell script. At work, i work on ksh. I don't have any such software/client installed at home and i cannot always connect to work from home. At home i have Windows Vista.

Is there a free and reliable software where i can run my ksh script?

Please let me know. It's very urgent!!

I am having couple of issues here.
1. I installed Cygwin; now when i do a simple vi it says
bash: vi: command not found.

how do i get vi here?
i have wrote scripts is ksh .. but here it seems to be bash .. how do i change the shell to be ksh

2. My script file is on my Desktop. How do i get in Unix env? an ftp? if so, how?

please bear with me .. i am really new to this.
