  • Install cwGit client to a directory (say c:\tools\cwgit_client_x64)
  • Download TortoiseGit and start the installer.
  • Installer - SSH client: Select OpenSSH

  • First time wizard - Configure git.exe: Select git.exe located at the cwGit client's bin directory, click check now and specify Cygwin related special hacks will be enabled:

  •  That's all.
