Error: spawn git ENOENT

See original GitHub issue

I keep getting this error message: Error: spawn git ENOENT when I try to view git history log for a private repository that I’m contributing to. image

P.S. I have git desktop and git shell already installed on my local computer because I’ve been using git desktop and notepad++ before this. I also have tried caching my git account credential as instructed here and restarted the computer but I’m still getting the same error. image

I also get the error. In the settings.json of vscode:

"git.path": "D:\\Git\\bin"

all git commands perform well in vscode terminal, except the extension.

when I change the configuration to "git.path": "D:\\Git\\bin\\git.exe", the error disappears.
