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,
