Trying to test connections to repositories - I get error and connection failed

Im trying to get to grips with fisheye talking to the current git repositories we have. When I configure git within Fisheye and test the connection I get the error below:

Error testing connection.
Error talking to repository:

'git' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Connection failed.

Under Repository root I have pointed it to the servers d: as per D:\fisheye-2.7.8\fecru-2.7.8\bin\..\managed-repos

And I am unable to pioint the git executable to the git.exe as I get error d:\msysgit\bin does not exist or can not be accessed.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

I am facing the same issue with FishEye 3.3.3 20140404093438 Crucible 3.3.3 20140404093438

Which version did you use ?

I have tried Git- and Git-1.9.5-preview20141217without success




Any update on connection?

Installed git for windows and now Fisheye can see the executable and also the repositories. The problem was incorrect veriosn of GIT.

As far as I can see it is showing you what is wrong. It cannot find git.exe. Does D:\msysgit\bin actually exist? And does it contain git? And is this the same filesystem/machine that fisheye is running on?

It does exist, the problem is that I am trying move the git version from cygwin to msysgit as using cygwin I get errors with the paths. If I point to the git executable within msysgit it errors with "Invalid git executable: Unable to get git version".
