Error when 'View file contents'

See original GitHub issue

Thanks for your excellent work.

There is a problem when I try to view one of the history file contents. It worked before. I am not sure when this problem started because I don’t use this command for a long time. My laptop and desktop have the same problem. The output is

git rev-parse --show-toplevel (completed in 0.001s) {"stack":"Error: spawn C:/Program Files/Git/bin/git ENOENT\n\tat exports._errnoException (util.js:1050:11)\n\tat Process.ChildProcess._handle.onexit (internal/child_process.js:193:32)\n\tat onErrorNT (internal/child_process.js:367:16)\n\tat _combinedTickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:80:11)\n\tat process._tickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:104:9)","message":"spawn C:/Program Files/Git/bin/git ENOENT","code":"ENOENT","errno":"ENOENT","syscall":"spawn C:/Program Files/Git/bin/git","path":"C:/Program Files/Git/bin/git","spawnargs":["rev-parse","--show-toplevel"]} git rev-parse --show-toplevel (completed in 0.002s)

Having the same issue, “View file contents” does nothing

afliwcommented, Jul 22, 2018

Me too:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Git:
  • VSCode: 1.25.1
  • Git History: 0.4.2

For some reason, when trying to open history of any file, it appends the drive letter C:/ to the correct path (I have my project on drive D:) so it ends being C:/d:/path/to/file.ext
