I can't do anything caused by "error: fsmonitor--daemon failed to start"


I was able to use "pull" and "push".

error: fsmonitor--daemon failed to start
On branch master
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.

Please help me

If so, a new installer for Git where the bug is fixed has been posted here:

Just a heads up, I removed the URL of your repo from your post for privacy reasons.

Kind regards,
