I am able to start git-bash via the Windows command prompt in several ways:
"C:\Program Files\Git\bin\sh.exe" "C:\Program Files\Git\git-bash.exe" "C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin\mintty.exe"
I would like to start git-bash in a particular directory using such a call.
For context, I am doing this from within the SAS Enhanced Editor. The actual call is
%sysexec(start "" "C:\Program Files\Git\bin\sh.exe" && exit);

Is it possible to start git-bash in a particular directory from Windows Command Prompt? If so, what's the proper syntax?
