I just installed git and bower via NPM for a project. It's a first time use.
Then I tried running
bower install jQuery
ENOGIT git is not installed or not in the PATH
To use Bower on Windows, you must install msysgit correctly. Be sure to check the option shown below:
[ ] Use Git bash only
[x] Run Git from the Windows Command Prompt
[ ] Run Git and included Unix tools from the Windows Command Prompt
After the installation has completed, restart CMD. You (and bower) will then be able to run
git from the command prompt, which will fix your issue.
