Connect to Bitbucket via SSH - Git for Windows not found

Postby Jusaneym on Wed Jun 15, 2022 4:21 am

Hi all,
I want to bind a project in Flare to Bitbucket. This works fine for HTTPS. But I have problems with SSH conections (which is what Development according to our internal policies requires).
Madcap also highlights in their own help that there are troubles with SSH - and advises to install Git for Windows.

I did so, but Flare doesn't seem to find Git for Windows.

What I did was the following:
1. Downloaded Git for Windows from https://git-scm.com/download/win
2. Installed it locally.
3. Ran Winget via command line (success).
4. Checked File - Options - Source control. But the git.exe has not been found.

Did anyone of you run into the same problem and find a solution?

For those ever stumbling upon the same issue. The solution is as simple as this. Git for Windows MUST be installed under C:\Program Files. Never choose another directory.
