I'm recording from a keyboard into a computer using Cakewalk
I usually use an audio-in line. Can I save this as an midi file some how. I've tried to save it as a midi file but a
guitar tab program I have (Guitar pro) won't recognise the *.mid files as saved via cakewalk

What you're doing when you record using the Audio-In plug is not MIDI, you're just digitalizing your keyboard's sound.

To reocord a MIDI file you have to buy a MIDI-to-computer cable (probably sold in music stores). Then you record using the MIDI In (there must be options on CakeWalk for recording sources).
Good luck!

It is my understanding also that CakeWalk comes in two basic flavors "Lite" or Demo, and "Pro" or release version.

If you are using the Demo version you will not be able to save the midi file.

I agree that you must record in a "midi in" mode or have some software that converts from one type of sound file to another.
