install via console fails - can't find git

Hi

On a Windows 7 machine I'm trying to start a new project via Console2 - have followed the guide as follows:

1: cd to required directory
2: npm install -g bower grunt-cli - successful
3: gem install foundation - successful
4: foundation new xyz_project - fails here

The feedback i get at fail point 4 is: 'Can't find git. You can install .... etc'
However, Git is installed on my system fine, have been using it for ages.

Can anyone advise what I should do here please?

Thanks in advance

I have the same problem. I have an idea to set environment variable for git, but can`t check it out at the moment (get computer in the evening). So you can try it first.

Update: I think the path on my laptop may be corrupted as I've had a similar problem when adding git as a new tab in Console2.
I'm getting the laptop checked over by a colleague in the next week and will write back when I know more.

This is fixed - as you suggested I just set an environment var for Git, rebooted and everything has fallen into place.
