I wanted to start syncing a git project to my Windows XP laptop so I installed msysgit because of the good things I have heard about it. The latest version was 1.6.2 so I figured that was a good place to start. Using a clone command I knew works on Linux since I use it all the time I attempted to clone a git repository from github onto the Windows PC. I ended up receiving the output below which is filled with errors.
git version 1.6.2.msysgit.0.186.gf75121.6.1, 1.6.2, branch, clone, git, git-clone, master, msysgit, tags, windows, xp
