[Solved] Cannot run program “git.exe”: CreateProcess error=

solution to the below error when Android Studio checks out git project:

Cannot run program “git.exe”: CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the specified file.



I’ve solved the problem , and I will explain how :

Download Github For Windows client and install it.

After The client successfully installed , connect it with your github account.It should be easy , just follow the wizard.

Then you should add git.exe location to your “Path Variable”. The location you should add will probably be something like : C:\Users\Your_Username\AppData\Local\GitHub\PortableGit_ca477551eeb4aea0e4ae9fcd3358bd96720bb5c8\bin

Alternatively , if you don’t want to add to environment variables. You can open the android studio and go to : Settings -> Version Control -> Git In text box next to “Path to Git Executable” you will see “git.exe” , just give it a full path like so : C:\Users\Your_Username\AppData\Local\GitHub\PortableGit_ca477551eeb4aea0e4ae9fcd3358bd96720bb5c8\bin\git.exe

EDIT : For latest Github for windows versions some can find the git.exe under “…\cmd\git.exe” rather than “…\bin\git.exe”.// . for my try, is this location not portabelgit\bin\git.exe.
