EXP utility asks for username and password, then disappears

When I issue the EXP command and enter username and password, the screen dissapears.

When I issue the EXP command and click OK, the utility is asking for username and password. After entering username and password the screen disappears. No backup was taken. What could be the problem?
From where are you invoking the export and import utilities? Which username are you providing? The user must have the privileges to perform an export or else the export will not proceed. Try invoking export from the command prompt on the database server. This works for both Unix-based and Windows operating systems. For more information on using export and import, refer to the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2) Utilities guide.
