Git Question

Which git.exe should I reference?

Git for Windows has installed four

git.exe
files.

They seem slightly different (comparing bytes).

Which should I use for other applications that want a reference to git.exe?


  • \Program Files\Git\bin\git.exe

  • \Program Files\Git\cmd\git.exe

  • \Program Files\Git\mingw64\bin\git.exe

  • \Program Files\Git\mingw64\libexec\git-core\git.exe


Answer

The different version are each one for a different purpose.
