I installed msysGit 1.7.7.1 (full installer) on windows 7. When I try to run ssh (or ssh-keygen), I get a (Windows) window error message saying that "ssh.exe has stopped working". When I use other commands such as ping they work fine.

Why does it stop?

You haven't given us a lot to go on.

It could be anything from a failing hard drive to a misconfigured setup script.

If msysgit was compiled on your computer, you very likely have things compiled incorrectly.

Msys is the name of a linux to windows bash emulation. A lot of things can go wrong there. – Stennis Card Nov 3 '11 at 19:04
