Have you correctly set your PATH to point at your Git installation?
You need to add the following paths to PATH:

C:Program FilesGitbin
C:Program FilesGitcmd

And check that these paths are correct – you may have Git installed on a different drive, or under Program Files (x86). Correct the paths if necessary.
