  • Cannot run program "git"

    STS 3.0.0M3, Grails 2.0.4, Windows XP. Everytime I do a run-app I get this:

    | Loading Grails 2.0.4
    | Configuring classpath.
    | Environment set to development.....
    | Downloading: plugins-list.xml.....
    | Packaging Grails application Cannot run program "git": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

    I can't find any reference to git in my project, tried installing git and adding it to the classpath, no luck there. Any idea why this is happening and how I stop it?

    I don't immediately know why executing grails is causing git to be invoked. Can you open your eclipse error log and look for relevant errors? Window -> Show view -> Other... -> Error log.

    Also, try running grails on the command line. Same behavior?

    Lastly, what kind of grails app is this? Is it a new app, or are you trying to run an existing one?
