Hi Sameer,

Allow me to add a few comments to Marcin's answer. Probably the easiest, and most guaranteed way to fix this is to tell Stash explicitly where your Git is installed, rather than having it search the path to try and find it.

To do so, in your STASH_HOME/shared, create a file called (or edit the current one if it already exists) and add the following line:



The line above corresponds to the directory of your Git binary (change it accordingly). This will configure Stash to use /usr/bin/git always, rather than allowing it to try and detect the one to use as described in our document.

Let us know how you go.

Best regards,

That git version should work, most likely Stash is not finding your git binary at all on startup. Make sure git is on the path, and that you definitely get one of the supported versions when you run "git --version" from the command line. Check the Git install instructions for Stash at in case you've missed a step: And if it still doesn't work this is probably a question that's better answered by Support ( as they will go through the process of getting your log files etc.

I have git installed on my machine see below: C:\Users\USER\Documents\GitHub [master +2 ~0 -0 !]> git --version git version 1.9.4.msysgit.1 C:\Users\USER\Documents\GitHub [master +2 ~0 -0 !]>
