I have used git bash 1.9.5 from https://git-scm.com/download/win (that URL starts a download) on ConsoleZ as shell and have no problem on open him inside a tab.

But, with the new Git for windows RC4, it open always in a new window. What are the command line options to use as a shell and open inside a tab?

I have not found doc or info about git-bash.exe command line options.


The following command is used in ConEmu's default task for GitBash.

git-cmd.exe --no-cd --command=usr/bin/bash.exe -l -i

Actually, git-bash.exe is only a wrapper which starts bash.exe. And git-cmd.exe is doing the same thing. However git-bash.exe is an application linked for GUI subsystem, and git-cmd.exe is a real console application. ConsoleZ (unlike ConEmu) can't run GUI applications inside its tabs.
