I'm getting the error

'git' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

When trying to run git from the cmd in wwindows 7

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have you installed a git client? – chunkyb2002 Oct 20 '10 at 22:46

Install the git client. If it still isn't working add C:\program files\git\bin to your PATH environment variable.
