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?

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".


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

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?
