Git under Windows

  • Apart from the git installation on Windows, I recommend TortoiseGit for a nice user interface.
    • it has to be configured to use the below mentioned git for windows as back-end (usually should be configured like that by default): you can check in (right-click in Explorer)->TortoiseGit/Settings/General/Git for Windows. (Click the version -> Check now button to ensure it says at least git version 1.9.2.msysgit.0.
  • If you want to use the Git bash, you need to install the newest git for windows.
    • with a right-click on a folder, you can then start the git bash from that point
