    hi all,
    i am looking for uwin 2.9.1,for learning unix.but i cant seem to find a version compatible with windows 7.
    there is a error message for ast54.dll and posix.dll.
    can anyone find me a working version of uwin or any unix shell that offers me basic command like : ed,cat,chmod etc.
    thanks in advance

    According to AT&T Research UWIN is compatible with almost all versions of Windows. Check the "for more information" link for UWIN on middle of the page. It has a good UWIN Overview. You can get UWIN source and binary at the bottom of the page.

    UWIN source,binary, and documentation

    The UWIN documentation says the following

    Hopefully it should meet the requirements for your studies.

    I believe that Windows account settings are mapped to UWIN. If you login to Windows with an adminstrator account then you should be able to use that account password for the command su.

    I installed UWIN on my system and tried to use the su command without any success. I think it might be easier if you use a Linux LiveCD or install a Linux distro in a virtual machine. Do you have to use UWIN?
