I'm running Windows 8 and for proper IntelliJ 12.0.3 configuration I need to give IDE information where it's able to localise the GitHub executable.

Since I'm new to the Windows 8 platform, I tired to use a few searches to localise it. Did anyone encountered this problem as well?

Using different IDE is not an option at the moment :/.

Thanks for hep in advance.

You should install msysgit and specify its path in IDEA settings:

c:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\git.exe

See also my answer here if you want to use git.exe provided by GitHub application.
