Do I need to install GIT with sourcetree


I have and am using sourcetree for windows7

I just loaded roots theme for WP and used 'npm install' but it fails saying git is not installed.

Do I need to install GIT seperately as well as sourcetree??

If not, where is the path to git?

Thanks Guys

Fixed it myself by installing git from here...

In Tools/Options/Git you can choose whether you want to use embedded or system Git. If you want to use the embedded one, you can download it from there, if you want to use msysgit, you can get it here.

Hi Gyro,

must say there is no need to install - use embedded!


You should probably use system version, and keep it up to date. Latest contains up to date security patches, etc.
