Hi there! Need help in running the command "vi Dockerfile" for Jfrog Docker Challenge. I'm facing glitches when i run this cmd in my windows cmd prompt or powershell. Anyone who can help me about this is welcomed.

My guess is you don't have Vi installed.Maybe try setting up neovim for better luck? FYI:
if you do use neovim the command will be nvim Dockerfile .Also, It may not working powershell , I don't know much about powershell.

As a general rule, when asking questions you should strive to provide as much detail as possible. Could you share the specific error output?

If I had a guess, it's that your windows command prompt doesn't have vi available, which is a text editor available in standard Linux distributions. I don't know much about Windows, but you may want to try following these steps using WSL. Alternatively, use a different text editor to make the required Dockerfile edits.
