When trying to add a Mercurial (hg) repository to Fisheye/Crucible, you receive the following error:

"Bad hg executable: Unable to get hg version. Ensure that hg is installed and on your PATH"


Open command prompt or terminal and try to run a Mercurial command:

hg --version


Either Mercurial is not installed or not properly configured in your PATH.


  • If you have Mercurial installed, check that your PATH variable includes the directory with the HG run file
  • Else, install a combatible Mercurial client
