Window 7 Git binary could not be found in PATH

See original GitHub issue

Screenshot of Error


The Situation

This error message keeps popping up whenever I do anything with Git. I cannot commit to my repo. I messed around a lot with Git and the plugin, but nothing.

Here’s my User Settings:

    "git_command": "C:/Users/[Username]/AppData/Local/GitHub/PortableGit_[LOTS of numbers and letter]/bin/git.exe"

I’m pretty new to this plugin and to Git/Github, though I have pushed one project with the pure command line, so I am not sure what to do. I’ve seen others with this problem in OS X, but I’m not using that.

How can I fix this? What is wrong?

UPDATE: If it’s important, I’m using Sublime Text 3 Build 3047.

Add “C:/Users/[Username]/AppData/Local/GitHub/PortableGit_[LOTS of numbers and letter]/bin/” folder to your PATH variable (Control Panel -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables)

{ ,“git_command”: true } that’s ok.
