Git Setup

March 13, 2022

Here is my basic flow for setting up git. My repository is rather large so I need to perform some special steps on Windows to get it working right.

Install git using chocolatey

choco install git

Long File Paths Configuration

On Windows, using regedit, navigate to:


Then set registry key LongPathsEnabled from 0 to 1.

Configure Git

git config --global core.longpaths true
git config --global "Username"
git config --global ""


That’s pretty much it!
