If I type which node in git bash in Windows, then I get node's path, but when I type which open, it says it's not found.

The open program is in PATH, but not marked as executable since chmod +x doesn't work in windows.

I tried running git update-index --chmod=+x on the file but that doesn't fix which behavior.

Any ideas?

  • Have you considered running git via cygwin? – Ziggy Crueltyfree Zeitgeister May 17 '16 at 7:06
  • I didn't have a good experience with cygwin but it would probably work. Now that I know bash is comming to windows 10 I guess we'll just have to wait for it. – Rivenfall May 24 '16 at 8:31
