Which system is it using ... MinGW (terminal shell) or Windows CMD? ... and what context do you type in git --version?  In the Terminal command line??

I have proved to myself that the Custom Commands in SourceTree uses the Windows CMD environment (on my Windows version).

Thanks for the quick reply!

Update:  Did this from both a CMD window and a terminal window .... got the same answer ... 

git version  .... (but that still does not tell me which git.exe is being executed in SourceTree ... MinGW or Windows CMD).
