Bitbucket Server Fails To Start on Windows, Please add git version 1.7.6 or higher to the PATH
mysysGit is installed on Windows but Bitbucket Server fails to start with the following message:
2012-07-10 14:31:33,656 ERROR [main] c.a.s.i.scm.PluginScmClientProvider git was not found on the PATH for Bitbucket Server. Please add git version 1.7.6 or higher to the PATH and restart Bitbucket Server.
The mysysGit installer modifies the environment variable %PATH% such that
<...>\Git\bin and Bitbucket Server is currently configured to check for Git using "

<...>\Git\cmd\git.cmd and fails. The following bug has been raised to correct the call:
Modify the %PATH% environment variable so the path
<...>\Git\bin comes before
